Tiny Woods Academy hosted the popular Striker School at Stobswood Welfare during the October Half Term Holiday.

The camp was hailed a huge success by both children and parents.

More than 40 children turned out to participate in fun, technical coaching sessions learning different techniques on striking the ball, playing the role of a striker, finishing under pressure, attacking combination play and counter attacking.

FA Licensed Coaches Josh Rutherford and Jamie Dixon said ‘It was such a fantastic week, the children have had a brilliant time and are taking great strides in their technical development’.

There was a special guest in former Newcastle United Head Coach John Carver who came along to present the children medals, trophies, footballs and signed photos of professional footballers.

John Carver was impressed with the set up at Tiny Woods Academy stating ‘The set up at Tiny Woods Academy is fantastic, I had a look around and the quality of the football from the children was excellent but what struck me was every child had a smile on their face and that’s what football is all about!’
