Football development

THE ANGUS Developmental 4s, aimed at footballing boys and girls aged six to eight years old, has restarted.

It will run in line with the Desire to Play stage in the Scottish FA Developing Talent Plan.

Development 4s is designed for young players who wish to put a game structure in place and provide opportunities for their new team to play regularly before the season starts. The programme will help the youngsters develop in a relaxed environment with no pressure and be allowed to express themselves and improve their basic skills.

The Angus Developmental 4s will run until Saturday, October 27, at the astro turf pitch at Arbroath Sports Centre, from 10 to 11.30 a.m. The cost is £1 per week per player.

If you would like to register any team or individual to take part contact Scott Nicoll, development assistant (Football) on 01307 474244 or e-mail
