Development the goal for football youth coaches from RHP Colts, Flowserve, Newark Town, Warriors and Muskham Cougars among others
An FA mentor has praised football coaches for coming together to provide the best standard of coaching for junior teams in the Newark area.
Coaches from RHP Colts, Newark Flowserve, Newark Town, Warriors, Collingham, Muskham Cougars, Bottesford and Winthorpe and Coddington Tigers (pictured left) completed the first block of their FA level two badge on Saturday.
The four-day course concentrated on how to correctly structure a session for youth players — block two and block three will start in the coming weeks.
Steve Thompson, coach mentor for The Football Association, said: “What’s so important and significant about this is that it is the first time in Newark that all of the clubs have put rivalries aside and come together for the benefit of the development of the children.
“How it has brought them together is fantastic — it represents an example of community cohesion.”
He said the level two badge is one of the most important qualifications to have for the development of grassroots football.
