A FOOTBALL club have decided to start their own youth coaching sessions following the success of a course run at their home by Plymouth Argyle.

Coaches from the League Two club went to Clifton Parc to carry out a session for young players going through a number of skills workshops before playing games in the afternoon.

Following the course which saw dozens of boys taking part, officials from the club have decided to set their own weekly training sessions up starting on Friday, August 29 which will run from 5pm to 6.30pm.

The training is free although any children wanting to take part are advised to bring a drink with them.

Club chairman Chris Rosevear said he was happy to see so many kids turning up for the training organised by Argyle and hopes the same can be achieved through the club’s own coaching sessions.

Mr Rosevear said: “I am really pleased with the turnout.

“The boys have worked hard and did the club proud.”

Carolyn Norton, the club’s social secretary, added the sessions will also be open for girls to take part in.

“My only disappointment is that we haven't had more young girls players turn up to training sessions,” she said.

“We have a very successful ladies team here at Mullion.

“It would have been good to see some of the young ladies of the future being put through their paces today.”
