Three new Robins coaches earn their badges

Congratulations and a warm welcome to the Robins FC coaching family to Justin, Trevor and Nathan who all succesfully completed their FA Level 1 coaching courses on Sunday, 10th Feb. The three completed their course after several weeks of Sundays and a few Friday evenings thrown in to boot with a gruelling 5-hour session on Sunday in foul weather, freezing cold rain, sleet the works! But all the hard work has now paid off and the three are now ready to start coaching duties with Robins' young players. Justin and Trevor will work with our newest players in the U6s and U7s age groups, while Nathan will join the U8s coaching team.

All Robins FC coaches have to attain the FA Level 1 as part of our certification as an FA Charter Standard club which means parents can rest assured their children are being trained by qualified coaches in a safe and fun environment. Club chairman Paul Wainwright congratulated the three on their achievement, commenting "Well done to you all, I believe this is excellent news for the club, with more qualified coaches on board to help with the important work being carried out coaching and empowering our future young Robins. This is what grass roots football is about, empowering not only the young players but in addition, the Dads and the Mums to get involved in the sport as well, truly great community stuff."
