OVER 20 students from Newtownabbey attended an Irish FA Grassroots Introductory Award which was delivered in the area by Grassroots Development Officer, Steven Livingstone.

The course was part of Newtownabbey Borough Council's, Youth Community Coaching Programme, which is aimed at providing an insight into coaching and sports development by providing subsidised introductory coaching awards in various sports. 


“It was great to see a high turnout in numbers and the students were enthusiastic and interacted well,” said Steven.  “The award provides an overview of grassroots football and will hopefully spur the students into getting involved in coaching and continuing on the coaching pathway.”
