Axminster Town launch Mini Tigers coaching scheme

PUBLISHED: 09:36 03 November 2011


Axminster Town launched a new initiative aimed at young players this week.

Monday night saw the first of the Mini Tigers sessions which provide coaching by qualified staff for young players between the ages of five and eight.

The sessions will run every Monday and last an hour, starting at 4pm in the Axminster Sports Hall.

It’s very much a turn up and play operation and Town Chairman Ray self says all are invited: “We are hoping this takes off as we recognise there’s a need to start coaching at a very tender age. Hopefully this Mini Tigers will prove popular.”
