Havering-based FA Charter Standard Club Tigers Girls FC treated their Under-11s players recently by arranging for England Women's Under-15s Head Coach, Kay Cossington, to coach them at a training session.
Essex County FA Football Development Officer, Andrew Crowl, was present to witness the session at the club on Saturday 6th September which was taken by Cossington, who is also the Lead of the FA Girls' National Talent Development Programme for elite players aged 7-17.
Kay has previously developed and restructured a new talent pathway for girls in England, as well as providing a training programme to support a talent workforce working within that pathway. She has a UEFA 'A' Licence and seven years of international coaching experience since coaching FA Women's Premier League side Millwall Lionesses.
Tigers JFC are based in Hornchurch, and the club have both boys and girls teams playing in the Echo Junior and Essex County Girls' Leagues. Volunteer Bonnie Le-Beau explained that the appearance of Kay was a pat on the back for the team's hard work: "After a first season which ended with us losing every single game - not even a draw - we wanted to look to do something to reward the girls for a season in which they tried their best.
"They'd given 100% week in, week out and never lost heart or interest. I E-Mailed the England team and asked if there was anything they could offer, explaining our first season's results. I was only hoping for a signed photo, but then I had a reply from Kay explaining how she started her football career in the local area and would be interested to come coach the girls one weekend!
"The girls had an amazing time with Kay. They all tried hard and were on their best behaviour. We also had some new girls join the team over the summer so this was a lovely experience for them, too. This was the second coaching session of the season and was just before our first game, and the improvements in the players was clear to see."
