Boys and girls aged 5-11 can benefit from free February half-term holiday football sessions next week thanks to the FA Tesco Skills Programme.

Qualified skills coaches are organising fun kickabouts at four venues across Essex, including one at SportHouse in Barking on Monday.

FA Tesco Skills is a unique football coaching programme which gives youngsters of all abilities the opportunity to get active, learn new football skills and enjoy the game.

It is based on a unique FA coaching model providing specialist, age-appropriate football guidance for children which is child-centred and caters for all ability levels.

The skills coaches put on free sessions in schools and clubs as well as after-school and holiday skills centres, so youngsters can be inspired to get active and maximise their ability, whatever their level.
