A lucky few of YLF’s young people were given the opportunity to attend one of the ‘soccer school’ days run by Maidstone United Football Club.
The boys joined in with 5 hours of football training and games held at Maidstone’s Gallagher Stadium. The football training itself was run by Maidstone United Manager, Jay Saunders, and several first team players, and the boys were even able to get a photo with Jay and the players before the end of the day.
Both boys had a brilliant time and were pleased to have been able to visit the stadium, train on the pitch and meet some of the players and the Manager.
“It was so fun being able to play on the pitch and meet Jay” – Kieran
“I can’t wait to tell me friends at school about today!” – Dylan
A big thank you goes to Maidstone United FC for offering the places and making this happen – both boys were over the moon and it really made their week !
