Coerver Coaching

On Wednesday 28th February 2018, Coerver® EW Director Scott Wright & Head of Coaching, Luke Cheyne, travelled to London to deliver a “Train Like A PRO” day with adidas® UK Tango League Champions, The K5’s.

Hosted by adidas® partner club, Fulham FC, the 9-strong squad were given the opportunity to experience a day in the life of a professional footballer.

In the morning, the group were given exclusive behind the scenes access to Craven Cottage – the home of Fulham FC since 1896 and one of the last remaining ‘traditional’ grounds in the country.

After a short transfer, the Coerver® team and The K5′s headed to Fulham FC’s Motspur Park training ground where they observed a full, first team training session as the Cottagers prepare for their crucial Championship clash with promotion rivals, Derby County tomorrow.

Following the session, First Team Coach Stuart Gray and Norwegian international midfielder, Stefan Johansen, took time out for a Q&A with the squad.

In the afternoon, Coerver® EW delivered both theory and practical sessions for the group. This began in the classroom with a workshop based on the mental and physical aspects of the game. The day finished with a Coerver® practical session in the Fulham FC academy dome.

“Together with our partner adidas and Fulham FC, the K5’s tango league squad have had an amazing opportunity to learn what it takes to train like a pro” said Scott.

“Our aim was for these young players to come away from the day inspired but also with an understanding that it’s the small details that can often be the difference between success and failure.”

“Making it in the modern game takes more than just football ability. Grit, determination, physical conditioning, nutrition, rest, making good life choices etc are all vital areas which we aimed to cover today.”

“It was great to hear our messages being reinforced by Stuart and Stefan. The lads were a pleasure to work with and we hope that they take all of this valuable information and knowledge that has been shared with them today and put it to good use within their own environment.”

“Finally, we would like to express our thanks to Fulham FC for opening their doors and making us all feel so welcome, it was a fantastic day for all concerned.”

Our behind the scenes video & media will be released next week across all @CoerverEW social media platforms.
