Children have been having some fun in the sun at half-term football training at the Shay.

Around 40 pupils took the chance to sharpen their soccer skills this week, taking part in training drills, a crossbar challenge, a penalty shoot-out and a mini World Cup.

The children were also given a stadium tour.

Lee Ashforth, Senior Football Development Officer at the Shay Stadium, said: “The kids have enjoyed being out in the sunshine and the weather has been a massive bonus.

“It’s our eighth year now but we’ve been even busier this year.”

There are still places available for next week’s course between 9am and 4pm from April 22 to 25, priced at £13 a day for children aged between five and 11.
