HUNDREDS of children and young people who attend PG10 Development Centres from across the Vale of Glamorgan took part in a football development day at the home of Welsh football - the FAW Dragon Park Headquarters in Newport.
The day was organised by PG10 Coaching and legendary goalkeeper Neville Southall, the all-time most capped Welsh international player.
The children were able to use the world-class training, playing and education facilities used by the eight Welsh national teams.
Players were taken through their paces in technical sessions by top PG10 UEFA qualified coaches and coaches from various Premier League clubs.
Part of the day was used to educate the children about nutrition and how to lead a healthy lifestyle and how to prepare for games and train professionally.
Players that attended the day were also given opportunities to attend the Ladies World Cup qualifying match between Wales and England at Cardiff City Stadium.
Peter Griffiths of PG10 Coaching said: “The day was a great opportunity to promote Welsh football to the next generation and inspire the children to play for their country while also encouraging families and the next generation to support the national side in their 2016 European Championships qualifying matches.
"The best footballing countries such as France and Spain have their own centres for development and days like today can only help enhance and promote Welsh football.
"We are also taking our players to the Spanish FA headquarters in Madrid as well as visiting the home of English football St George's Park, again to aid player development."
The next PG10 Development Day at the FAW Dragon Park is during the February Half Term on Thursday, February 19 next year.
