Parents can sign up their children for the sessions by visiting the 'fun football' section of the McDonald's website.They have been paid for by Northampton McDonald's franchisee Perry Akhtar. He said: “After some great sessions earlier on this year it is fantastic that we can once again help get children back playing football together after such uncertain times.

“It’s so important that children take this opportunity to keep active which will benefit both their physical and mental health, so It truly is an honour to be involved in this scheme and to work with the FA alongside other franchisees, and the business, to give even more children the chance to hone their skills – no matter their ability."
