Zambia Trip Update – Day Five

SAM_3141The team have had another busy day with expanding the Swindon / Livingstone partnership. Jon Holloway, Clive Maguire, Beth Thompson, Becca Ash and Jack Goodenough especially had an early start to position the solar panel on the roof of the school of ‘Linda West’ before the hot African sun rose, and to also coach football to the students of the school. Progress has definitely been made and we are looking forward to the grand switching on ceremony of the solar lights on Thursday 30th May.

Luke Sharps and Shane Hewlett continued with educating the coaches with practical sessions from the FA Level 3 relevant to improving children’s football in Zambia. Tony Williams also continued with his referee tutoring and has been especially impressed with the reaction of all young referees attending the course from their natural talent to their enthusiasm of completing the job at hand. He has commented ‘Their enthusiasm and knowledge will surely make them into good referees. It was really encouraging to see the boys and girls clearly signalling and communicating between each other as referee’s and assistants. The referees job is always difficult, but they understood the need to be clear and authoritative managers of the game. It has been my pleasure to be associated with such an enthusiastic and motivated group.’

The team are set to sort out all of the generous donations this evening in preparation for the forthcoming tournaments on Friday 31st May and Saturday 1st June. We would like to thank our main sponsor Intel for providing us with a top of the range ultrabook, which enables us to send home a daily update from Zambia.
