FOOTBALL organisations are teaming up to support grassroots soccer across the region.

Sunderland AFC’s charity The Foundation of Light and Durham County FA are to assist in the running of the new Coaches Clinic, which is designed to help coaches make the most of their player’s talent and abilities.

The workshop will be led by the Foundation of Light’s acting football development director, Jamie Wright.

The Coaches Clinic, which was launched by Sunderland’s senior professional development coach and former SAFC skipper Kevin Ball, will count towards the continued personal development for members of the FA licensed Coaches Club.

Gemma said: “This new initiative will not only help attendees in enhancing their professional qualifications, but will also offer practical tips and advice that can be taken back to their teams and used on an on-going basis.”

Bookings are currently being taken for next month’s Coaches Clinic, which will be held on Friday, February 21, at the Academy of Light, in Whitburn.

Those interested or wanting more details, should email gemma.lavery@safc.com.
