“It-s brilliant fun, I had a great time with the children,” was Perth Glory midfielder Steven McGarry-s reaction after Tuesday-s ‘Soccer Schools- clinic at Percy Doyle Reserve, Duncraig.
McGarry was one of six Perth Glory stars who spent the afternoon with more than 100 juniors aged between 5-13 years old.
The two-day clinics have become the most popular community event with children getting the chance to meet their heroes and play small-sided games against them.
For Perth Glory goalkeeper Neil Young the clinics had a special connection because he grew up playing on those same fields for Sorrento.
“It-s enjoyable for the players to see the kids running around with a smile on their faces, and the kids get a fair bit out of seeing the players come down.”
Perth Glory-s Community Development Manager Callum Salmon said the ‘Soccer Schools- clinics were about more than just football.
“The kids learn about standards and discipline and having fun, but doing it in the right way.”
Committed to grassroots football across WA, Perth Glory is also holding the same clinics in Bunbury this week.
Four players including local Josh Risdon will travel down to the Bunbury Soccer Dome to be part of the fun.
