Kids kick ball at football summer camp on M.C.C.’s green

[Linked Image] For the past two weeks ninety-eight kids have been gathering at the M.C.C. Grounds for a football summer camp. It’s the second annual Smart Four Stars Football Camp and it gives the young aficionados a chance to improve their skills. The participants include boys and girls that are divided into three age groups for more effective training sessions, which focus on discipline. News Five met the kids on the field and they showed us what some of what they have been learning.
