Our students have continued to impress on the pitch, as our eight teams have featured in weekly competitive fixtures since Christmas. This offers our students the ability to hone their football abilities and offers a chance to bond with their classmates.
As the coaches have overseen gym activity for their squads this term, the primary focus has been power and athleticism. This gives the students an advantage on the pitch, as this allows them to last the full 90 minutes, while being stronger in both defence and attack.
Being a powerful player allows our students to be faster, stronger, and fitter than the opposition, and sets a good precedent for a career in sport that many of the students will go on to lead. Receiving training from ex-professional coaches will set our students up in good stead for the future, whether it be to become a coach themselves, or to go on to develop a career in football.
The students have also welcomed first-team players Paddy Madden, Ryan Johnson, Ryan Croasdale, Will Collar, Myles Hippolyte and Fraser Horsfall, as well as former player Sam Minihan to Stockport Sports Village, who delivered a coaching session as they work towards their UEFA B Licence badges.
