Latest Blog from the Gambia

Further updates from our Youth Coordinator Dave Giles who is in Gambia coaching youngsters.

Update from Friday

Another hard day out in the sun at least it’s cooled down to 94 degrees today. Started the day at the school 10am until 1pm warming up with (hares and hounds) then a few small sided games on keeping the ball and ending in a 5 a side tournament. You would not believe that they have never played 5 a side and it took a while to get it going.

I will be referring a game with the hotel staff playing a local restaurant and in the afternoon I’m free hooray. Sunday afternoon I’m off to help a local U16s team with some coaching and back to school Monday. Have I mentioned I have been bitten to bits so loads of creams, sprays and tablets but they still get me. Loving it though.
