Leigh United invited to coaching day at the iconic Cliff Training Complex.
At 9:30am on the first Monday of the school summer holidays the under-6, 7, 8 & 10 teams convened at The Cliff Training Complex in Salford for a club training day delivered by Manchester United coaches – to say the players (and some parents) were excited is a massive understatement.
The schedule was a full day of football, a two hour training session in the morning consisting of fun-based technique work, lunch and then another two hour session in the afternoon learning through matches/competitions.
Hats off to the Manchester United coaching staff, it was a pleasure to watch the professionals at work, teaching the kids new skills and better technique.
The day finished with some group photos and each player given a Manchester United football in the community certificate. It was obvious that everyone had a lot of fun and for some of the kids they did not want the day to end.
An enjoyable day of football and a memorable experience for the players of Leigh United.
