The Year 1 pupils from Cobholm Primary Academy enjoyed a day of expert training at the Colney Training Centre in Norwich to develop their footballing techniques, with an emphasis on respect and good sportsmanship.

After impressing coaches in a series of four-a-side matches, Tommy Thompson was picked out as a potential player for the Norwich Academy Under 7s team, and has been invited to return for further training.

“Though the day was challenging and tiring, our pupils showed great determination and tenacity.

“It was extremely gratifying to see the pupils helping up teammates who had fallen and shaking hands with opponents after matches; a real sign of respect between players.”
