Players Visit Fulham Soccer Schools

Some lucky participants got to meet members of the First Team as they dropped in on Fulham Soccer Schools on Monday.

Fulham is running courses until 30th August 2013 which cater for boys and girls, of all abilities, between ages three to 14 at a number of great venues across London and Surrey.

And those who signed up to be involved on Monday got to meet Kieran Richardson, Maarten Stekelenburg, Hugo Rodallega, Sascha Riether and Kerim Frei at Motspur Park, while the likes of Steve Sidwell, Damien Duff, Mesca and Neil Etheridge travelled to other venues at Bishop’s Park, Tadworth Primary School and Surrey Sports Park in Guildford.

“It’s a great thing to get kids involved in the game as early as possible,” said Fulham right-back Sascha Riether. “A lot of kids love to play football and for me it was the same, as I would play with my friends from about four years old.

“It is always good to have them in the right environment, learning from good coaches and seeing what is possible. When I was younger there were always Bundesliga players who would answer questions and show us the way forward."

“Certainly it is a great thing for them to be involved with the Fulham FC Foundation and hopefully there will be one or two who we see playing in the Premier League in years to come.”

Head Coach, Paul Smithers, added: “Fulham Soccer Schools offer a great opportunity for our participants to play football at some fantastic facilities – none better than at the Club’s training ground. On occasions the children can look up during a session and see Berbatov or Hangeland doing similar drills to them on the pitches opposite, it’s a great experience for them and we’re really grateful that members of the first team stop by now and then to see how the children are getting on.”
