Jess Everall presenting the St Albans City Youth Kit
As part of the Football Associations ‘Football Futures’ Programme, City Youth Coach Jessica Everall went on the programmes trip to Rwanda in what Jess describes as “the most amazing experience of her life”.
Jessica, who is now at the University of Derby said, “To go and meet the Rwandan leaders and the children in the schools and how welcoming they were to us and how willing to learn they were. Everyone just wanted to play football!”
Jess continued “As well as us teaching their leaders we also learnt a lot from them, for example different ways they keep children engaged in sessions, how simple football can be as a game and also that anyone can play football, have fun and learn new things”.
Jess concluded by saying “It was an amazing trip and would urge everyone to get involved with Football Futures so maybe one day they can have this experience as well”.
Jessica also handed over a City Youth football kit that was donated by the club.
