Foot­ball camps back for Oc­to­ber Week

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Sports - Mark Pirie

The Al­bion Rovers Foot­ball Camps are set to re­turn next month.

As part of the ‘ Rovers in the Com­mu­nity’ project young­sters will be wel­comed to Clifton­hill from Mon­day Oc­to­ber 16 to Fri­day Oc­to­ber 20. The camp will be led by Rovers man­ager Brian Kerr, along­side striker Sean Hig­gins and wing-back Scott McLaugh­lin.

The kids will be put through their paces with skill drills, tour­na­ments, and other fun games.

Hig­gins, who also led a sim­i­lar camp this sum­mer, is hop­ing for a good turnout from young Rovers fans and keen foot­ballers un­der the age of 14 across Mon­k­lands.

“I’m look­ing for­ward to it and we’re hop­ing to get some good weather!” he told the Ad­ver­tiser.

“We had a re­ally good re­sponse to the camp in the sum­mer, and I’ve al­ready had a few par­ents find out about com­ing back again.

“I’ve been go­ing around some of the schools and the kids seem keen on it - so the more we can get the bet­ter it will be!”

He added that the team are look­ing to use other train­ing facil­ties if the win­ter weather bites dur­ing the camp.

The camp is priced at £50 for the week, or £10 per day.
