"I wouldn't be where I am today if it wasn't for the Foundation coaches"

ANOTHER chapter in The Albion Foundation success story is being written in Worcestershire.

Working in the county for six years, the programme offered in the area by the charity is one that continues to grow.

"We offer numerous football pathways in Worcestershire," said Richard Holmes, The Albion Foundation Worcestershire Football Development Officer.

"We work with children that have never played before, all the way up to experienced, gifted and talented children."

"We run soccer camps in the school holidays which are available to children of all abilities aged between four to fourteen."

"We offer soccer centres, skill centres and school programmes."

"We also provide development centres for children to progress and try and push on in their development."

A perfect example of the charity's work benefitting young footballers in the county is Maxwell Moses.

"Maxwell started off with us at one of our soccer camps and progressed into our Player Development Centre.

"We've got a brilliant link with West Bromwich Albion and through that he was scouted by the Club."

The young goalkeeper is now in his second year with Albion and is thankful for the coaching he's received from the Foundation in his fledgling football career.

"I enjoy playing football in Worcestershire because of the coaches that help me.

"If I don't get anything, they come over to me and help me to make sure I do get it and then I become really good at the training session."
