A Manchester City coach is to deliver a free master class at Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility on 28th November between 6pm and 9pm.

Charlie Jackson, who owns Matrix Soccer Academy in Lancashire, advocates the use of Portuguese, Italian, Spanish, Dutch and Brazilian football styles.

Scottish FA Central regional manager Andrew Gilchrist said: “This in-service will be a great opportunity to see drills related to situations that happen in matches which players can then take into matches on a Saturday or Sunday.

“Charlie will also do a Matrix session from start to finish and also talk about how you can learn more and see more content with his coaching system, Matrix Soccer.”

The Matrix model, endorsed by UEFA, is a technical coaching model which aims to improve young players’ techniques, ball control, vision, awareness and sportsmanship.
