Carniny Amateur & Youth FC Football Development Centre and Coerver Coaching Centre were delighted to receive continued sponsorship from Robinsons (NISA Extra) supermarket, Cullybackey Road, Ballymena.

The backing will guarantee survival of both schemes for the foreseeable future. Robinsons have supported their local soccer club for several years, indicating their commitment to the local community and on Saturday past shop manager Gary Olphert visited the clubs coaching base at St Louis to present club secretary Billy O’Flaherty with a generous cheque.

The club hosted their fourth session of their Robinson’s Supermarket sponsored Football Development Centre at St Louis Grammar School on Saturday. The sessions are open to all children, BOYS and GIRLS born in 2011, 2010, 2009 and 2008. The club welcomes those who have previously attended and NEW players.

There is still time for players to enrol for those who missed the first sessions. Players have the option of attending both the Saturday Morning sessions, which will be held at St Louis Grammar School and Monday evening sessions which is a Coerver Coaching Training night hosted by Austin Speight of Coerver Coaching Ulster at Cambridge House School or just attending a Monday or Saturday session.
