Local footballer experiences the 'Real' deal

Talented young soccer stars from north and west Wiltshire recently trained with football coaches from the famous Real Madrid Academy in Spain.

A total of 46 youngsters aged seven to 15 took part in the week-long training camp organised by AFC Corsham. As part of the package they were given a full Real Madrid kit by Adidas, a Real Madrid club waterbottle and an Adidas football each.

The children all came from the Bath, Corsham, Chippenham and Melksham areas and were learning from industry professionals at AFC Corsham’s Leafy Lane ground.

Some of the youngsters were gifted places on the £300 training camp by local sponsors.  Levi Ross, 11, a Corsham AFC player, received his voucher from Redcliffe Homes, who are building at Park Place in the town.
