Chester FC showcase skills at College

May 9, 2012

Players from Chester Football Club visited West Cheshire College to lead a skills workshop for sports students as part of the College’s year- long Olympic celebrations.

The team came to the College where they led the workshop which focused on improving the control and dribbling skills of the students.

Steph Garrett, Assistant Manager in Health and Well-being at West Cheshire College, said: “Many of our sports students are big football fans so there was a lot of excitement about having Chester FC come to the College to showcase their skills and talents.

“The students really enjoyed taking part in the activities and we had great feedback from them as they had learnt a lot of techniques and skills from the players.”

Jeff Banks, Media Officer at Chester FC said, “It was great to see Chester FC players getting involved with West Cheshire College sports students. As a Community Club, we want to do all we can to assist those looking to develop their football skills, and I’m sure the students enjoyed the sessions. I’m sure the Club will return to the College in the near future as we look to develop our relationship with the College.”

The series of sporting events being held at the College throughout the year are to celebrate the 2012 Olympics and to encourage more people to get active and enjoying sports. The events include taster sessions in fencing, volleyball, archery, table tennis and handball and a visit from Olympic high jumper Ben Challenger.
