Youngsters get the chance to play football samba style

By Dominique Stafford in Football

YOUNGSTERS can experience the true essence of total football, samba style, on Wednesday evening when the TetraBrazil academy is holding a free open event at the Powerleague Mill Hill centre.

Under the guidance of former Crystal Palace, Oxford United and Crawley Town footballer David Hunt, ex-Watford and Brentford goalkeeper Richard Lee, plus FA Affiliate Coach Stephen Quinn, players will gain an insight into the flair and possession of Brazilian football during the event at the facility off Pursley Road.

Hunt and Lee, who, between them, have amassed over 600 appearances in the Premier League and Football League will, alongside Quinn, be on hand to help hone the talents of more budding young footballers.

The free coaching session is open to boys and girls of mixed abilities aged between five and 14 years old. It has been designed to give youngsters a taste of modern day coaching techniques, which have been synonymous with South America for decades.

The back-to-back coaching sessions will take place between 5.30pm – 6.30pm (for five to nine years olds) and from 6.30pm – 7.30pm (for ten to 14 years old).

Players will need to bring the appropriate footwear for the artificial (3G) playing surface, ideally a pair of goalkeeping gloves, plus shin pads and plenty to drink.
