Perth Glory Youth players have enjoyed teaching students from Mirrabooka Senior High School some new skills this week as part of our Glory in the Community programmes.

Glory players Dean Evans, Ludovic Boi and Steven Hesketh, all hailing from the Stirling Lions, led a special skills training clinic with Director of Coaching at their WA Premier League club, Michael Lyons. Over 60 young footballers from the school turned out to learn a few tricks from Perth Glory Youth-s talented trio.

As well as showing off their best football moves, the boys were there to encourage aspiring young schoolboys and girls to see first hand what it takes to make it to the top of the local football scene.

Mirrabooka SHS runs a specialist soccer skills program which gives Perth Glory and local clubs like the Stirling Lions the chance to link up with migrant students from all over the world who live and breathe football.

These programmes are excellent for the development of football and give many students who come from a diverse range of cultures and backgrounds the opportunity to build on their talents.

Perth Glory is proud to be a part of their development, promote the world game at all levels and give equal opportunities to promising footballers of the future.
