WODC gives youngsters chance to improve skills

West Oxfordshire District Council is giving young footballers a chance to improve their football skills with the restart of the Football Development Centre in partnership with Reading Soccer Schools.

A boys' Elite Development Centre for the 2006/07 season will be held at the Witney Artificial Turf Pitch. Talented club and school players will have the opportunity to receive high quality coaching on a regular basis and the Centre will be a stepping-stone from local to academy football. Outstanding players will be recommended to Reading FC for further academy trials.

Cllr Tony Walker, Cabinet Minster for Leisure and Tourism said, "This is a wonderful opportunity, not to be missed, for youngsters to experience high standard coaching with the potential to improve their skills."

The Centre offers ten weeks of coaching sessions for 6 to 12 year olds. Trials will take place on Wednesday 27th September and Wednesday 4th October for the under 7's to under 10's age groups. Friday 29th September and Friday 6th October is for the under 11ís and under 12's and a goalkeeper's specialist course will also run on these dates. All courses will commence on the 11th October.

For further details or a nomination form please contact Mike Grant at Reading Soccer Schools on 01993 864700 or 07737 845959. Alternatively, email mike@readingsoccerschools.co.uk
