Ferndale Park on Arklow’s Cemetry Road this coming Saturday morning promises to come alive with goals and ghouls very much a central part of the weekly Nippers Academy.
United’s ever popular Nippers Academy takes centre stage on the impressive astroturf pitch every Saturday between 11.00am and 12pm, midday, catering for boys and girls aged between 4 and 7 – the perfect platform upon which to learn and enjoy the basics, the skills and all the drills.
All in a fun-filled environment. This week however, with Hallowe’en firmly in focus, the many boys and girls who attend the Nippers are being asked to dress up for the occasion.
Rewinding twelve months back, Spongebob Squarepants, an odd ninja, Count Dracula and a couple of skeletons grabbed the headlines in a thriller at Ferndale!
So, who will take centre stage at the Nippers Academy this weekend? A ghost? A witch? Or a ghoul?
The coaches at Arklow United are frighteningly excited already! United are also preparing for a Mid Term Glasgow Celtic Training Camp for the schoolboys and girls at the club next week, with coaches arriving from Scotland to oversee their development and skills.
So, a date in your diary folks – this Saturday: Arklow United Nippers Academy, Ferndale Park – fancy dress football: Goals and Ghouls, 11am till 12pm.
