Hartlepool United Community Sports Foundation have been running their Soccer Course throughout the summer holidays at High Tunstall College of Science.
And the courses have once again proved extremely popular, with between 30 and 60 people attending each day.
The children enjoyed action-packed days, playing a whole range of both indoor and outdoor games with HUCSF’s coaches.
And last week, Pools players Billy Paynter and Lewis Hawkins went along to the soccer course to take part in passing competitions with the children, before handing out medals to the winners.
The pair stayed to have a chat with the group before getting together for a big team photograph.
HUCSF’s Liam Nobbs, who oversaw the Summer Soccer Course, was delighted with how well attended the course was,
“We’ve been delighted with the number of children we’ve had attending the soccer course this summer. We’ve never had less than 30 children here, which means the games and activities are always very competitive and more enjoyable.
“The soccer courses have been running for quite a few years now and to see them so well attended is very rewarding for us.”
