The Community Trust are excited to announce that we, in conjunction with Accrington Stanley’s Academy, are partnering with Real Betis to bring a taste of Spanish football to Accrington via an Academy-style Football Camp for 8-14 year olds.
Head of Sport at the Community Trust, Lee Walsh said:
“We are delighted to be working closely with the Academy to provide this unique experience to children from Hyndburn and surrounding areas. This is another step closer to bridging the gap between our community sessions and academy football.”
The camp will be operating for the second year in a row, following on from last year’s successful camp which saw 65 children take part in 5 days of specialist coaching from coaches of La Liga’s Real Betis.
Head of Academy Coaching, Duncan Fearnhead believes this is another positive step, and an example of joined up thinking throughout the club:
“The partnership we are looking to develop further with the Trust contributes to the club’s vision of providing local children the opportunity to progress to an elite level” He then added “The Community Trust staff are out and about in community sessions and local primary schools year round, and are in a great position to spot the talented players that the borough, and surrounding areas, has to offer.”
