THE fifth of Larne and Carrickfergus Borough’s Irish FA ‘Nutty Krust’ Summer Soccer Schools took place last week at the home of Carrick Rangers Football Club.
The boys and girls involved took part in the coaching sessions, daily skills challenges and World Cup matches. The week was organised by Larne and Carrick’s Grassroots Development Officer, Jonathan Michael.
Speaking about the week Jonathan said: “We have had a great five days in Carrick, we have been lucky with the weather and all the children have been able to take part and enjoy the sessions. The Grassroots Summer programme has been a super way for all children regardless of ability to further develop their skills. It has been encouraging to see so many children improve throughout the week and I hope to see this continue in the coming football season.”
Jonathan added: “I want to thank Carrick Rangers Football Club for their support over the week and for providing such an excellent facility. I also want to thank my team of Irish FA qualified coaches who worked so hard throughout the week and I hope the children have learnt a lot from them this week.”
