UCD Soccer Skills team visit Hollypark and Kill O' The Grange schools

Over the week of April 14th the UCD coaching team visited Hollypark and Kill O The Grange Schools in Dublin. These visits were a continuation of UCD Football Clubs soccer skills in schools programme and were a great success. UCD Coach Martin Russell was assisted by first team player Greg Bolger to deliver a skills based coaching session to young soccer enthusiasts from Hollypark. Dribbling and close control were amongst the skills worked on, while fun and enjoyment was had by all during the session. Later in the week Martin visited Kill O The Grange with first team player Ian Bermingham. Once again the emphasis was on dribbling and close contact with the ball. Each young student is provided with their own ball during the session which is a massive help. The coaching sessions are delivered in an entertaining and enjoyable fashion, with all students keenly involved, regardless of their ability. All young students were invited to become Official Junior Blues and we look forward to seeing them at upcoming UCD matches at Belfield Bowl!
