We are please to announce Castle Colts as our first Sister Club
Last Wednesday, on a rather soggy evening, we ventured down to the Orchard Ground, Allington, Maidstone, Kent to deliver a coaching session to Castle Colts Under 9s, 10s, 11s and 12s as part of our Regional Talent Club work with local grassroots clubs.
RTC Techical Director Paul McDonagh and coaches Kim Dixson, Grace Coombs and Ellie Jeffkins were welcomed by almost 50 excited young Castle Colts players.
Each coach took as session - passing, dribbling, shooting and defending & shooting numbers game - and the four Castle Colts teams rotated round to each session.
The hour and a half session finished with some small sided matches.
The evening was rounded off with a big team photo and the announcement that Castle Colts are our first Sister Club.
We would like to thank Castle Colts for their hospitality and we look forward to working with them.
As a Sister Club their players will get free entry to any of our Women's 1st team games providing they wear their Castle Colts tracksuit.
Castle Colts will also be mascots for a couple of our games this season and we are pleased to confirm one of those will be our home game v West Ham on Sun 23rd October.
We will also be attending a couple of other Castle Colts events this season.
We will also be inviting the Castle Colts coaches to attend one of our RTC training nights when the season gets under way.
Castle Colts are sponsoring 1st team captain Kim Dixson and defender Grace Coombs for 2016/17 - Thanks for your support!!
Over the next few months we will be announcing some more Sister Clubs so watch this space . . . . . .
