Burnley FC coaching team head for town

BURNLEY Football Club’s team of football in the community coaches will soon be back in Todmorden.

Starting on Tuesday April 26, coaching staff from Turf Moor will be running the very popular “Skillz Coaching Centre” at Todmorden High School on their playing fields.

The football coaching sessions will last for one hour and will take place every Tuesday 5.30pm - 6.30pm and are run for children aged four to 12.

There will also be chances to win Burnley Football Club prizes and there will also be special days where members of the Clarets’ first team squad will be visiting to sign autographs and pose for photgraphs.

Skillz Coaching Coordinator Martyn Robinson said: “It will be superb to be delivering the sessions in Todmorden, as I am from around these parts and it is something that I have been driving towards for some time.

“Hopefully there will be a lot more Burnley FC activities around the town soon,” he added.
