Over 140 young footballers at the opening day of the summer Spireites Soccer School, held at St Mary’s School, received a visit from manager Martin Allen and his players, who joined in with the activities.
The Community Trust's activities officer, Nathan Khan, was delighted to see Martin and the squad in attendance. He said: “I think it’s massive. Martin has done a great job building good ties with the community since he has come in and I think things like this can only help and enhance the club. The work he has been doing with the Community Trust has been fantastic.”
Drew Talbot commented on how much the players enjoy opportunities like this. He said: “You see the kids’ faces when you come and a lot of the players have kids themselves and know how much it means to them.”
The Spireites Summer Soccer School is organised by the Chesterfield FC Community Trust and runs until August 31. It provides a great opportunity for children to learn and showcase their skills, as well as getting access to first-class coaching.
