The second of Larne and Carrick’s Irish FA ‘Nutty Krust’ Summer Soccer Schools took place last week at Carnlough Swifts Football Club. The boys and girls involved took part in the coaching sessions, daily skills challenges and mini soccer matches. The week was organised by Larne and Carrick’s Grassroots Development Officer Jonathan Michael.

Speaking about the Soccer School Jonathan said, “It is great to see so many youngsters from Carnlough enjoying the sessions we have put on this week.  There has been a great atmosphere over the five days, we have had lots of fun and it has been encouraging to see the children develop their football skills.  Jonathan added “I want to thank Ben Harvey, John Grant, Albert Watson and Gail Macklin who coached the groups and worked so hard throughout the week.  Their coaching sessions are always enjoyable and challenging and I know the groups appreciated their expertise this week.  Thank you also to Carnlough Swifts Football Club for the use of their facilities all week and for their continued support.”

During the week the children took part in a daily skills challenge with the four winners meeting in Friday’s final challenge.  All the children in attendance at the week received a Nutty Krust goodie bag and a football which was well received.
