Glory shares its knowl­edge with Knights

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Driveway -

PERTH Glory play­ers Andy Keogh, Scott Jamieson and Jor­dan Thurtell shared tips and tricks with 15 play­ers from West­ern Knights’ Equal Foot­ing­ball Di­vi­sion (EFD) teams re­cently.

Knights ju­nior pres­i­dent Daniella Ronnes­tad said the Glory play­ers each took a group through train­ing drills and tricks be­fore talk­ing to the Knights play­ers and get­ting pho­tos with them.

“They loved it, all the kids had a great time,” Ronnes­tad said.

“We had great feed­back from the par­ents.”

The EFD started in 2010 with the West­ern Knights and one other club and now in­volves eight clubs and a se­niors di­vi­sion.

Jamieson said he was im­pressed by the team, which in­cluded state par­a­lympic and Spe­cial Olympics rep­re­sen­ta­tives.

“It was a plea­sure to be in­vited to their train­ing ses­sion and to meet them all,” he said.

“We were a few times sur­prised by the skills out there and they cer­tainly gave us a good run.”

The EFD team trains Wed­nes­days at Mann Oval, Mos­man Park.
