The Knuckleball Twins

Today, the children enjoyed a football coaching session from Sammy and Charlie, aka the Knuckleball Twins.

They taught the children the knuckleball free kick, giving them greater accuracy in their shots.  Before heading out onto the field, they told the children all about the famous players and managers they have met along the way and showed them the knuckleball technique in videos and images.

Once out on the field in the sunshine, the children started with a quick warm up.

Then, the boys demonstrated the knuckleball free kick before letting the children loose having a go themselves!
