A FOOTBALL scheme designed to help reduce concern of 'perceived anti-social behaviour' is to be launched next week.
Organised by Topsham police community support officer Percy Giles, the Friday Football Project will start at the Hundred Club in Countess Wear at 6.30pm on May 15.
The scheme is aimed at young people aged between 11 and 17.
Mr Giles said: "The project has been set up to give young people something enjoyable and constructive to do. There was perceived to be a lot of anti-social behaviour on the Countess Wear estate."

"It is a great scheme. As councillor for that area I'm concerned about youngsters who may not have enough things to do," said Cllr Owen.
