Day One Of The Celtic FC Academy Sets A Cracking Pace Indoors At Carrara

With fields closed until tomorrow, the 2017 Celtic Academy Coaching Clinic blazed through its highly successful first day today at the Carrara Indoor Sports Stadium.

Arriving from Scotland yesterday were top Celtic FC Academy coaches, led by the amazing Graham Diamond, and they wasted no time getting the entire squad up to speed with the ‘Celtic way’ of football training.

P.J. keeping the little ones on their toes and all ears. The boys are slowly becoming accustomed to the accent, we did have to explain to a couple of them what the word ‘wee’ meant in Scotland haha!
Matt and his son Charbel are coming all the way down from Warwick to be here – great effort lads!

The drills were expansive enough to stretch the kids just beyond their comfort zones but measured enough that the day flowed well and everyone kept up. Passing, opening up the body, individual skills and fierce team work were all covered.

Great to see Matt and his son Charbel who are making the trip each day all the way down from Warwick, keen as to get involved in this amazing coaching clinic.

Back to the grass at Glennon Park tomorrow, and looking like a bumper week of football ahead for the lads!
