The Guernsey FA, in partnership with Guernsey FC Soccer School, is pleased to confirm the return of the unique Dutch Masters tournament during the upcoming October half-term.
The partnership between Guernsey FA and Guernsey FC Soccer School continues to provide a significant number of children with the opportunity to develop new and existing football skills in a positive and fun learning environment with sessions being delivered by highly qualified and experienced coaches, including Tony Vance, Colin Fallaize, Angus Mackay and Joelle Pengelley. The Dutch Masters tournament will run from 29th October until 2nd November, and the unique nature of this tournament ensures it is ideal for players of all levels of ability and confidence, which fits with the Soccer School ethos of ensuring everybody can enjoy participating.
A new sponsorship agreement with Spirit has recently been finalised, which will allow the GFA and Guernsey FC Soccer School to continue offering these opportunities to the local community. Guernsey Soccer School Founder and Director, Tony Vance, commented that;
‘We are delighted to have the support of Spirit, which will enable the Soccer School to remain committed to delivering community engagement opportunities that ensure football remains accessible for all of the community. The partnership between the GFA and the GFC Soccer School has proven to be hugely successful, which is shown through the continued high participation numbers and we are pleased, that through the generous support of Spirit, to be able to continue offering exciting opportunities for all of the community. It is important to highlight that, unlike other soccer school programmes, all of the revenue generated through the Guernsey Soccer School remains on-island and is reinvested back into local football through various activities and initiatives. It is for this reason that we appreciate the continued support shown to the Soccer School by the local community and by Spirit.’
