Hope Akpan – Community Trust Social Participation Ambassador
Hope visited a Prince’s Trust workshop this past week to meet youngsters who were taking their FA Level 1 coaching badges at the Indoor Training Centre.
The Community Trust has long and successful history of supporting the Prince’s Trust, with a large turnover of participants eventually moving on to become full and part time staff members at both the Community Trust and Football Club.
Hope was on hand to watch the youngsters take part in the coaching sessions that were run by their peers, and was impressed with the variety of drills on show.
The midfielder then took part in a question and answer session, giving the youngsters an insight into the world of a professional footballer, and was happy to give an insight into the training methods and tactical insights he has experienced throughout his playing caree
