Worksop Town welcomed 60 budding young footballers to the first of their 2015 Easter camps on Wednesday.

The club’s Football in the Community programme is hosting two two-day camps over the school holidays, at the Glassworks sports facility on Sandy Lane.

And the youngsters who took part not only enjoyed coaching from some Worksop Town first team players, but some fine weather conditions.

Tigers skipper and coach Jake Scott said: “The first day saw just shy of 60 children.”

“We worked on different techniques and plaed fun games in the morning before lunch ,which we managed to sit and eat outside and enjoy the beautiful sunshine.”

“Then after lunch we went on to play an FA Cup structured competition.”

“The remaining three days of camp will follow the same structure with little adjustments to make sure we are helping the children improve their overall game.”

Next week’s football camp will run on Tuesday and Wednesday between 9.30am and 3pm.

The camps are for boys and girls aged between five and 15 years of age, and all abilities are welcome.

The cost is £10 per day.
