Eastbourne Borough Youth FC held the first of their Coaching in the Park sessions last weekend at Gildredge Park.

On hand were Borough youth coaches to put the under-6 and under-7 girls and boys through their paces.

The morning featured warm ups, match related drills and mini soccer games. There was also a surprise visit from first team and former Borough Youth player Simon Johnson, who took the eager young footballers for their cool downs. Borough Youth chairman Allan Staples said, “We have brought our Saturday morning training session from Priory Lane to Gildredge Park for two weeks.

“We invite those interested in joining at any age from 5– 18 to come down and have a chat and to see a coaching session in progress.”

They will be at Gildredge Park from 9:30 -11am. More information is available at www.ebyfc.net

The under-6s and 7s are sponsored by Eastbourne-based internet company FunkyHampers.com.
