On Friday 25th February 2011, in half term, we took over 25 kids to Manchester City’s football academy to have coaching sessions, personally by the club's coaches.

The young people – representing Firvale School, Byron Wood, Firshill and St Catherine’s – went through a coaching session in the morning and had a mini tournament in the afternoon. The club took details of one of them – which is a sign of them being interested in the future.

Overall the day gave the young people an opportunity to understand what football clubs look for – and they enjoyed it. Hopefully opportunity like this will raise their aspirations and maybe we'll see a future Rooney from Burngreave.
