Great time had by over 100 youngsters
Over 100 young people aged between six and 12 took part in the official Millwall Soccer School and Multi-Sport courses at the Lions Centre last week.
Millwall Community Trust’s Soccer Schools provided an action-packed week where young people participated in many football challenges such as penalty shoot-outs, cross bar challenge as well as skill techniques and small-sided matches.
The Multi-Sport camp proved just as popular with youngsters able to try their hand at a variety of different sports such as fencing, golf, rugby and basketball. They also had their own mini Olympic-style competition.
First team players Shane Lowry and Martyn Woolford popped down to the Lions Centre on Thursday to see what all the fuss was about. The duo enjoyed themselves so much that they even took part for a short period, which brought a huge smile to faces of the young people.
Before the players left, they made sure they signed an official Millwall calendar for everyone on the courses and these were handed out at the end of week presentation.
First team manager Ian Holloway put his troops through a pre-match training session at The Den on Friday morning and allowed all the young people who attended the Community Trust’s holiday programme to watch the first-team squad in action before they set off for their Championship game at Barnsley.
We asked Harrison White, aged 6, what he enjoyed most about last week and he replied: “I liked the matches and Danny Shittu got all the players to come over and see us.”
Millwall Community Trust have again consulted with parents and young people on many of their courses to get valuable feedback about the type of courses they feel best serve the needs of the local community.
