Digicel welcomes Chelsea Coaches


Digicel team with Kick Start coaches.

Thirty young football enthusiasts who recently qualified to take part in the 2013 Digicel Kick Start Clinics will benefit from training with three top coaches from the Chelsea Football Club Foundation, England. The coaches arrived on island Thursday evening ahead of the event’s official launch ceremony and clinic, which took place on Friday.

Digicel’s marketing team was on hand to welcome the coaches as they arrived. The Chelsea Football Club Foundation coaches were greeted with local fruits and souvenirs showing them true St Lucian hospitality

The coaches are David Monk, senior international football development officer, who specializes in ambassadorial roles and coach education programmes. Andrew Patrick Ottley, who is the international development officer, will join him. Ottley is experienced both on and off the pitch and is an invaluable member of the Chelsea FC coaching staff. The third coach is Kane Nicholas Cowburn, international football development head coach. Kane has a wealth of experience in the scientific elements of modern football. As an international development head coach, Kane specialises in the tactical analysis of players within an elite performance program.

Marketing manager for Digicel St Lucia, Kerchelle Jn Charles said: “Digicel is very pleased to receive international support from the Chelsea organization for our youth in St Lucia. Giving young footballers an opportunity to showcase their talent and further enhance their football skills with progammes such as Kick Start, is a mandate that will be kept by Digicel.”

After the under 16 football players have been put through rigorous training sessions, three enthusiasts from the St Lucian leg of the Digicel Kick Start Clinics will have a once in a lifetime opportunity to attend a one week training camp at the Digicel Academy in Barbados in August. At the camp they will be joined by young footballers from other Caribbean islands and Central America.
