Teams show off their skills

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - FAMILY ANNOUNCEMENTS -

YOUNG­STERS tak­ing part in coach­ing ses­sions or­gan­ised by Charl­ton Ath­letic across Kent put their skills to the test. Teams from South Kent and Swale took part in a com­mu­nity match at Crab­ble, the home of Dover Ath­letic. The south Kent team was made up of young peo­ple from Shep­way, Ash­ford and Dover and young­sters from Sit­ting­bourne, Faver­sham and Shep­pey played for the Swale team. All the play­ers have been at­tend­ing lo­cal free coach­ing ses­sions run by Charl­ton’s Com­mu­nity Scheme and had been cho­sen for their team be­cause of their at­ti­tude, re­spect and at­ten­dance. Clive Har­ris, a youth worker with the Kent Youth Ser­vice, said: “Some of the play­ers had never played an 11-a-side match be­fore and most of them had not played at a sta­dium be­fore which made the game even more spe­cial.” The Charl­ton Ath­letic Com­mu­nity Scheme runs free coach­ing ses­sions in the South Kent area.
