FORMER Sunderland skipper Kevin Ball is conducting a grassroots coaching clinic at the Academy of Light next week.

Black Cats Under-21s coach Ball is the chief guest at the Foundation of Light’s “Coaching the Coaches” session on Friday, July 26, which will combine practical and strategic methods for those working in local football.

The Foundation of Light’s assistant director of football development, Jamie Wright, said: “We’re delighted to be able to host Kevin Ball at the next ‘Coach the Coaches’ clinic.

“He has a real wealth of information and, like all the best coaches, he’s never stopped developing his own knowledge.”

Tickets for the clinic, which runs from 6pm to 8.30pm, are priced at £5 and can be booked through Rhys Atchison on (0191) 5515077 or
