Schools enjoy Football Festival

Over 50 Swansea school pupils braved the wind and rain to enjoy a Football Festival at Elba Sports Complex this week - a fantastic event organised by Sports students from Gower College Swansea.

The event took the format of a 7-a-side 'round robin' with all the schools playing against each other, with a Final being played by the two top-scoring schools. 

"Our students have worked closely with the schools in delivering football sessions each week throughout as part of their Football Coaching and Performance course," says lecturer Andrew Stokes. "It was great to set up this event and invite the school pupils over to show off their skills in a fun, competitive environment. It was a great success with a very good standard of football on show."
