The Football cage – a mobile, custom-designed, cage for up to four people to play football in – was also developed by HYPE and local joiners after feedback from youngsters in the summer and unveiled in October last year.
But what exactly IS the Football Cage? Where did it come from? And just how can you go about having a go in it?
The Cage is just that. A cage for playing football in – either one against one or two against two (there are goals built in). Five metres wide and made up of 16 panels, we reckon it’s the biggest in the North West, and, vitally, it can be put up anywhere there is enough room. A school playground, a patch of land, a park.
