Multiple former Premier League stars arrived at Poolfoot Farm on Wednesday morning for a day of FA A-License coaching with our International Football Academy (FTIFA) players.

From former-Leicester City goalscorer Emile Heskey to the set-piece specialist full-back Leighton Baines, the players from FTIFA were treated to a day of coaching from multiple professionals as part of their PFA coaching badges.

They were joined by Jay Spearing, Chris Maxwell, Dave Jones, and more, who conducted sessions and gave tips to the players, with our very own Nathan Pond helping out at the club's multi-million-pound training complex, Poolfoot Farm.

The players started with some warm-up drills in the morning, which led to some high-intensity training before heading into some small-sided games on the 3G pitches, whilst PFA and FA coaches watched on from the sidelines.

It's always great to see former-pros working, and expanding their game, at Poolfoot Farm - hope to see you back soon!
