Long Itchington Coaches Work With Girls Football Club
Princethorpe Girls’ Football Club has welcomed local Long Itchington Football Club manager, OP Oscar Rose, and his coaches Stav, Sophie and Lucinda to their Friday afternoon training sessions for the last four weeks.
The coaches have been putting the girls through their paces, working on fitness, tackling, holding the ball, passing, shooting and match play. In their final coaching session, they split the girls into four teams and held a mini ‘World Cup’ to put all those newly honed skills into practise. The event was fiercely contended with plenty of shots on goal. It ended with a nail-bitingly close final, where Mr Lee's team were beaten by a single goal.
Huge thanks to Oscar and his coaches for their support and encouragement and for helping the girls develop their football skills.
The after-school club is run by Mr Lee and Mr Compton and will continue next term with players of all ability levels welcome to get involved.
