Report by Mr Lawrence

On Monday 20th October 2014, the first festival of the new Long Term Player Development Centre season took place at Mounts Bay Academy 3G pitch. Mounts Bay were the hosts for the evening and we welcomed down the Truro LTPD centre for an evening of festival Football. The event was extremely positive with over 120 players attending from both centres, ages ranging from U7s-U12s who all took part in an array of matches.

All players involved have recently trailed for the Development Centre’s, here at Mounts Bay they have begun the season with an array of coaching sessions to kick start the season. It was finally nice to see their new skills put into action at the festival. Many thanks also to the students from Mounts Bay Academy who officiated the event to gain further leadership experience, these were; Billy Edwards, Jack Sharp, Ben Chapman, Francis Pengelley, Charlie Willis, Logan Trevains and Matthew Roberts.

The MBFDC centre is now in its fourth season and is looking to prosper further with improved links with Cornwall Schools FA, Cornwall FA and Plymouth Argyle Football Club.
