Albion stars visit soccer camps

Six Baggies join forces with The Albion Foundation

SIX Albion stars played their part in the community on Tuesday, visiting over 250 children across various soccer schools in the West Midlands with The Albion Foundation.

Boaz Myhill visited the newest camp at Boldmere St Michael's FC, with this week marking the first time The Foundation have worked in Sutton Coldfield.

Meanwhile, Jonas Olsson and Jonathan Leko were on hand at Redhill Foundation School to take part in a skills workshop with the pupils, followed by a Q&A session.

It was James Morrison who set the quickest time in the Portway Lifestyle Centre assault course. Cheered on by around 50 participants in the Disability Sports Camp, the Scotland international took penalties and weaved his way through inflatable tunnels to break the record.

Finally, Ben Foster and Salomon Rondon were put through their paces at Sandwell Academy, taking part in speed challenges and sprint tests. Foster then lead some drills for a group of aspiring young 'keepers.

And the Baggies stopper highlighted how effective The Albion Foundation is at getting young people playing football.

"The soccercamps are a great way for youngsters to get into the game, that's why I send my son!

"They're not so much about competitive development, they're just an enjoyable way to play football with some quality coaching to assist the kids.

"Everyone seems to really enjoy the sessions and we see the same faces at every camp so they clearly all want to go again which is massively important."
