Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil Easter foot­ball camps a big suc­cess

The Oban Times - - Sport -

AR­GYLL and Bute Coun­cil Foot­ball ser­vice ran its ever pop­u­lar, fun-filled Easter foot­ball camps through­out the area over the two-week Easter break.

The camps were very well-at­tended with many cour­ses fully booked.

The ses­sions worked on im­prov­ing the young play­ers’ foot­balling skills and tech­nique and other im­por­tant life skills that sport brings to young­sters in­clud­ing re­spect and re­silience. This was achieved in a fan­tas­tic en­vi­ron­ment cre­ated by the coaches.

David Pater­son, one of the coaches at the Oban camp, said: ‘De­spite the weather, the chil­dren had a re­ally en­joy­able time, learn­ing new skills and en­joy­ing their foot­ball.

‘It’s very much about hav­ing fun while learn­ing some­thing new.’

More than 60 young­sters from pri­mary one to pri­mary seven took part in the Oban train­ing camp, coached by David McArthur, Thomas McCul­loch, Colin Car­swell, David Pater­son and Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil foot­ball de­vel­op­ment of­fi­cer Martin Rae.
