Fri 11 Aug 2017

 

Locally based waste management company TWMA have confirmed that they are to support Team Manager Jim McInally and Peterhead FC in providing free coaching sessions for local youngsters.

The programme, which is open to children aged 6-14, will run from 16-17 August and aims improve the skills and confidence of young footballers in a safe, fun environment.

Jim McInally, Peterhead FC team manager, commented: “I am delighted that TWMA has chosen to support Peterhead FC, allowing us to offer free sessions to the local children during the summer holidays. 

“Our holiday coaching camps which carry a fee are always very popular, and that’s why I’m pleased to give something back to the community.”

McInally, who is a former Scotland International player, will be running the coaching sessions along with Peterhead FC’s qualified SFA coaches and players.

Commenting on TWMA’s commitment to supporting its local community, John Morgan, Peterhead Site Manager said: “We are delighted to support this Peterhead FC run programme which offers a great opportunity for young children to have fun whilst improving their football skills. 

“We are committed to supporting the local areas in which we work, and with our processing facility based in Peterhead, I’m pleased that we’re able to support the local children in the area.

The sessions will be fully supported by Peterhead Boys Club and the Hexagon Club. Peterhead Boys Club representative Dianne Beagrie said: “I think it is a great idea and I hope that it will involve kids from PPSFA, the Boys Club and also the local boys and girls who are not involved with these clubs.”

The sessions can cater for a maximum of 200 children with 50 children at each session ( 1 session per child ).

The 90 minute sessions will run from 10.30am till 12 noon and 1pm till 2.30pm.

Application forms will be available from Peterhead.Football Club from 9am on Wednesday, July 26. 

Demand is expected to be high and therefore places will be secured on a first first served basis.
