Last month three of our Kingsmeadow Football Academy players, Owen Mitchell, Dominic Pegram & Morgan Waggott won the opportunity to represent the KFA at a coaching day held by our kit sponsors and travel providers InspireSport and the Manchester City Football Schools Coaches.
Each player received this opportunity as a result of their desire to develop throughout this season so far in the academy. Each player was provided with kit and was taken through a series of game related exercises throughout the day. The presentation held at the end of the day saw Morgan Waggott win the skill challenge and Dominic Pegram win Player of the Day.
All 3 players conducted themselves in an extremely professional manner and represented not only the Football Academy but Kingsmeadow School to the highest standard.
Kingsmeadow Football Academy held a special promotional day linked with our kit providers NIKE and Kitlocker. The day gave all of the KFA players the opportunity to trial the newest NIKE footwear during a training session held by the KFA and NIKE coaches. It was a fun experience for all involved and we will be holding this event again in the near future.
As the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation is set to celebrate 10 years of fundraising this weekend, we were delighted to receive receipt for the money our Year 7 REAL showcase event raised for this fantastic charity. The foundation was set up by Sir Bobby himself, who was diagnosed with cancer 5 times and to date, the charity has raised twelve million pounds for vital research into the disease which affects around 2.5 million people in the UK. With the generosity of local business Ringtons Tea Merchants, who donated hampers for us to raffle, we proudly managed to raise £200 for this very worthwhile cause.
