Football Skills on Show at Claygate Primary School

On Friday, I popped by Claygate Primary School, where headmaster Darryl Taylor introduced me to the FA Skills initiative on display.

FA Coach Roxanne Bennett was showing an energetic group of boys and girls a number of drills to sharpen up their footy skills. It is part of a program to help strengthen grassroots football through schools, but also to help primary schools teach the technical side of the game better. The youngsters were getting a lot out of the coaching - so it's clearly working - and the program covers all levels of skill and ability.

There are three full-time coaches working with primary schools across Surrey. It's funded by the FA and Sport England, so there's no extra cost for schools.
