Professional football coaches set to visit Pool Academy

Plymouth Argyle Roadshow is coming to Pool Academy to give children a day of football during half term.

The event will take place on February 12 and is open for those aged 5 to 15 years old.

It will take place from 10am until 3pm and will see professional Football Association coaches leading activities.

This is the first time the football club has come to the school and Pool Academy teacher, Mark Fuller, hopes this is the start of further links between the school and the football club.

He is excited about the event and said the day will see children learning football skills, techniques and take part in competitions and small sided games.

“We are really looking forward to the coaches coming,” Mr Fuller said. “It is going to be a great day to get the local community playing football.

“This is the first time Plymouth Argyle have arranged to come to the school.

“There will be fully qualified Football Association coaches teaching skills and there will be football matches too. It will be a full day of football for only £8.

“This is the first time we have managed to secure Plymouth Argyle to come to Pool Academy but we are looking at doing something a lot bigger with them.”

Anyone taking part will need to bring their kit, football boots, trainers, shin pads, packed lunch and plenty to drink.
