Middlesbrough goalkeeper Dimi Konstantopoulos made a surprise visit to our Keepers and Strikers Holiday Course at the Herlingshaw Centre on Tuesday.
Having recently penned a new one-year deal with the club, Dimi spent the afternoon with over 40 children on the course, delivered by qualified Foundation coaches to help improve aspiring young strikers with their shooting, and goalkeepers with their shot-stopping skills.
The one-day action-packed course included fun activities and football drills, five-a-side matches, and certificate and medal presentations at the end of the day.
Dimi was on hand to offer the children some first-class tips on the art of goalkeeping, as well as signing some autographs, posing for photos and awarding the prizes out to the children.
“I really enjoyed spending some time with the children on the course,” Dimi said.
“It’s nice to give something back to the young supporters who come and watch us every week, and for them to spend their Easter playing football and keeping active is great.
“There was some good young goalkeepers out there today, and strikers too, and I’m glad they really enjoyed the programme.”
The Keepers and Strikers course is just the first of three separate holiday courses put on by MFC Foundation over the two-week Easter break.
Our ‘Girls Only Coaching’ course will take place on Wednesday April 9th, with our ‘Train Like A Pro’ course spread across two days from Thursday April 10th to Friday April 11th.
