QPR striker launches football training sessions in Hungerford

QPR striker, Charlie Austin, will return to his home roots over half term, for the launch of football training sessions at his former Hungerford school.

The centre forward told the NWN yesterday (Wed) the new football school would launch at his former school, John O'Gaunt in Hungerford.

The Championship striker, who at one time played for Hungerford Town FC, promised to drop in on one of the coaching sessions, to inspire young hopefuls:

"I will be there on one of the days also to meet the children," he said.

"From then we plan to move around secondary schools and primary schools throughout Berkshire and Wiltshire," he said.

Delivered by business partner, Steve Hooper, of Inclusion (coaching), the sessions promise chance to polish up football skills whilst making new friends:

"Our sessions are built around the FA Youth Award approach including elements of social, technical, physical and psychological development," he continued.

The sessions will also develop youngsters' leadership skills, initiative and overall confidence.

The training sessions are open to five to 16 year-olds.
