Last Saturday afternoon Wyrley Lion’s Under 12’s were asked if we were willing to help The FA in coaching some coaches in the finer arts of futsal at the multi million pound home of English football, St Georges Park.
So Curly and Fatboy stood and pondered the invitation for at least point five of a second, did we really want our boys training on the purpose built futsal court and being trained by England Partially Sighted Team Head Coach Ian Bateman?
Did we want the lads to sample the delights of probably the best football training complex in Europe, if not the world? TOO RIGHT WE DO!!
So on Saturday the boys turned up, minus Rhys Parry after a Impromptu Tennis ball football Injury left him on crutches!! We flew in Connor “Sinner” Sinclair as a super sub to take his place.
The boys then listened intently and worked their socks of for the coaching staff for nearly two and a half hours in unseasonably warm conditions in front of twenty or so coaches from the four corners of the country, hoping to get their level 2 futsal qualification! After hearing how good you lot were Barcelona quickly booked in for some pre season training, that’s right Messi be afraid….. be very afraid!!!
On October the 4th we will be going back for the full tour of St George’s and a training session this time on the indoor 3g!!!
I have to say you did yourselves, myself, Stewart and Wyrley Juniors proud!!
Well done boys!
