Make sure you look out for our very own football freestyler Billy Wingrove making an appearance on Blue Peter tonight, 5pm.

With the World Cup well under way, Blue Peter presenter Gethin Jones felt it was just the time to get some much-needed practice on his keepy-uppy skills. After practicing on his own for a while, he realised that what he needed was some professional help from a freestyle expert; that is where Billy comes in!

Gethin joined in with one of Billy’s freestyle sessions, and was put to work on some basic tricks to begin with, helping him to develop his first touch and general ball skills. Under Billy’s guidance he managed to get to grips with some of the skills and tricks very quickly, so Billy decided to set him a challenge. Gethin was set the task of learning a freestyle routine that he would have to then perform, alongside Billy, at the end of the day in front of a Tottenham Academy team. But could he do it?

To see whether Gethin passed his challenge, make sure you tune in to Blue Peter on BBC 1 at 5pm on Wednesday, 21 June!

Billy will be appearing at our coaching courses, held as part of the Club’s growing coaching programme in North London, Essex, Enfield and Hertfordshire, where he will be demonstrating his great ball juggling skills and tricks to boys and girls, aged six to 16 years old.

Commenting on the courses Billy said: "Football freestyling is really great fun and becoming more and more popular. I’m really excited about teaching young kids how to improve their skills and tricks."

Courses are for boys and girls of all abilities, so everyone is able to get involved and learn some new tricks.
