This week at our Official NFFC Soccer School we had some very special International visitors! Aditya, Aniket and Aryan Thaker came to our Soccer School at The Forest Sports Zone, all the way from Westchester County, just outside of New York.
They were bought to our soccer school by their father on their yearly family trip to England, their mum is originally from Wollaton in Nottingham therefore, providing the link to Nottingham Forest. Their parents thought attending our soccer schools would be a great opportunity for them to have some fun whilst here on holiday, as all of the boys love football. All three of the children play for their school football team as well as Briarcliff Manor FC outside of school.
Their dad explained to me the boys are ‘football mad’ they grew up watching football and taking after their dad who also enjoyed football when he was younger. The family visits the UK every year for about 5/6 weeks spending time at their grandparents house, this Summer they attended our soccer school as their dad explained they are ‘often at a lost of what to do’. Knowing that Aditya (6), Aniket (8) and Aryan (10) all love playing football in the USA, their Dad thought it would be a great experience for them to get to play football with British children.
The boys said they had a great day and are returning to our Soccer Schools for two more weeks!
