Pelé at summer school

FOOTBALLER Pelé shared his best tricks and tips with youngsters at a coaching camp in Manor Fields Primary School.

As part of the Matt Le Tissier Natural Coaching programme, Pelé was brought in by fundraiser Barry Webb, who is raising money for charities Kick4Life and the Saints Foundation.

The summer school was put together to give children between the age of five to 13 the opportunity to learn about the game.

Pelé, a former defender for Saints and West Bromwich Albion, said: “The first thing I told them on the Monday morning was that they had to respect each other and that is what we wanted to get across.

“The main objective is to make sure the children had fun, it's not like an academy situation where we'd have them running drills, we want them to smile and enjoy themselves.”
