Legend Kewell drops in to tu­tor

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

FOOT­BALL fans were out in force when Harry Kewell, Aus­tralia’s great­est foot­baller, headed to Her­vey Bay in Septem­ber.

The Soc­ceroos star took his Harry Kewell Academy to the Bay for chil­dren aged 9–12.

Mun­dub­bera and Gayn­dah soc­cer stars of the fu­ture, Rhythm An­beek, Con­nor Pash­ley, Sophie Zipf along with Ben Kelly from Mun­dub­bera and Rosie Tom Halt from Gayn­dah had some in­ten­sive coach­ing from the man him­self.

Sophie Zipf was one of the lo­cal chil­dren who em­braced the op­por­tu­nity to get some one-on-one time with the su­per­star.

“There were so many kids there it was in­cred­i­ble,” she said.

“Harry Kewell spent time with ev­ery­one and he was so easy to talk to.”

Kewell, 35, said he had been look­ing for­ward to go­ing to Her­vey Bay and pass­ing on some of his foot­ball knowl­edge to the next gen­er­a­tion of foot­ball stars.

Since re­tir­ing from foot­ball in March, Kewell has ded­i­cated his time trav­el­ling around Aus­tralia to con­duct his academy master classes.
