Ledley King joined our Global Coaching team for a session at Watsonia Primary School in the suburbs of Melbourne on Monday morning.

It was smiles all round as hundreds of children were put through their paces by the coaching team of Andy Rogers, Ose Aibangee, Danny Hart, Chris Gillman and our Head of Global Coaching, Grant Cornwell.

Legendary former captain Ledley relished the chance to get involved as he moved around the groups, offering his advice and he couldn't resist getting back on the ball again!

It was one of a number of grassroots coaching clinics the Club will deliver during our time in Australia.

Indeed, by the time we head back to England, our Global Coaching team will have worked with over 3,000 children in Melbourne.
