Morecambe Football Club has announced the first in a series of international Soccer Camps, to be delivered by its Academy.
Academy staff will travel to the Isle of Man at Easter, to provide coaching for young footballers aged 6-16 years. The coaches will help players develop their skills, with a programme focussing on technical and tactical aspects of the game. The sessions are designed for footballers of all abilities and will be delivered by UEFA qualified staff from the Academy.
The Soccer Camps also provide an opportunity for Morecambe Academy coaches to identify talented players and offer a possible pathway into the Academy and a scholarship with the Club.
Head of Youth Stewart Drummond said, “We’ve been working for some time now to develop links around the world and it creates exciting opportunities for the Club.”
“Our visit to the Isle of Man is the first stage of a programme that will see Morecambe FC extend its reach to Northern Ireland, Canada and Australia in the coming months.”
“We’ve already seen players from Australia, Northern Ireland and across Europe playing in our first team. It shows the talent is out there and can be added to the youngsters we are developing locally.”
Ramsey Youth Centre and Old Boys FC will provide the venue for the Isle of Man camp, which takes place between 3rd – 5th of April and is the first such venture in the north of the island.
Stewart Drummond is looking forward to the Club’s visit, “we all know there is a great appetite for sport on the Isle of Man; so I‘m sure we will find a lot of enthusiasm when we bring our coaches to Ramsey.”
