Glacis United Football Club invited Special Olympic athletes to participate in a coaching session which they had organized with two top coaches from Premiership Club Bolton Wanderers. The lads took part on a chilly grey Sunday and their enthusiasm and delight lit up the drab afternoon.
The two coaches, Craig Doble and Sean Couch were impressed by the level of concentration shown by our athletes and their performance on the day. We were pleased to learn that while they had prepared for a less technical training session, once they had seen the commitment and how quickly our lads picked up the instructions they incorporated extra techniques into the programme.
The evident delight of our athletes was enjoyed by all, and all, coaches included, have learned new techniques to incorporate into training sessions. A very worthwhile venture and thank you Glacis United for including Special Olympics, inclusion in action.
