Western Suburbs Weekly - - - By DENISE S. CAHILL

WEST­ERN Knights Soc­cer Club will con­tinue its in-house pro­gram this year for play­ers born in 2008 and 2009.

The boys and girls aged six and seven, with eight-year-old girls wel­come to join the boys group, will train ev­ery Tues­day from 4.30pm to 5.30pm, with games from 9am ev­ery Sun­day at Nash Field.

Par­ent co- or­di­na­tor Barry Bignell, whose chil­dren are part of the pro­gram, said the play­ers were split into four groups each week, depend­ing on their abil­ity.

“We have re­ally struc­tured train­ing so they learn about how to play in a po­si­tion, pass­ing and get a good in­tro­duc­tion in to the way foot­ball should be played,” Bignell, of Mos­man Park, said.

“It’s a good start­ing point for the play­ers.

“It’s very pro­fes­sional and is based on the FFA coach­ing man­ual.”

A West­ern Knights top di­vi­sion player is be­ing sought to coach the group.

On com­plet­ing the pro­gram, play­ers can move on to play ju­niors for the Mos­man Park club.

The sea­son runs from April 19 to Septem­ber 13 and reg­is­tra­tion is $280. For more in­for­ma­tion, call Barry Bignell on 0411 166 692.
