England and Arsenal Ladies player Rachel Yankey made a surprise visit to the Nicholas Breakspear Sports Centre the training hub of St Albans City Youth Community FC. She conducted a number of interviews with the City Youth players that will form part of a short youth-led TV show "football beyond borders" are producing.
Football Coach and Organiser Jasper Cain said "Thank you for the use of the fantastic facilities. The St Albans girls asked some great questions. I hope to return soon to do a feature about your thriving youth set up on a future show."
Rachel Yankey stayed with the St Albans City Youth Girls for over an hour so she could encourage our younger players and discuss footballing matters with the older girls.
