Wembley event huge success for grass roots teams

Football News 24/7
Twelve very fortunate grassroots teams who won the opportunity to attend the inaugural McDonald’s Coaching Masterclass at the Wembley on November 20th were thrilled to have their coaching taken by a group of legends, which included former Arsenal defender Martin Keown and ex Manchester United striker Andy Cole.

The former internationals were in charge of on-pitch coaching.

Amongst the clubs selected was Bedfordshire based Shillington football club. Shillington's Dave Austin said: “A very limited number of places were available for the sessions for clubs with teams with under sevens through to under 14s.

“We were competing against thousands of other sides so we were delighted when we found out that we would be able to take part.”

The youngsters are also very excited, Dave said.

He added: “Most of the under 11s have never heard of players like Sir Geoff Hurst and Pat Jennings so they have been spending quite a lot of time on Google!

“I think it will be a privilege for everyone involved with the club to attend.

“We can’t wait to take a tour around the famous stadium.”
