Coaches’ chance to learn Chelsea way

Chelsea FC youth development officer Mike Beale will be delivering a free coaching session on youth football at Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility on Wednesday, November 30, at 6pm.

Beale, Chelsea’s under-14 coach and head of scouting for age 12 and under, has been asked by North Lanarkshire Council’s sports development team to present warm-ups, drills and games for local coaches to experience. 

He played professionally with Charlton Athletic and FC Twente in the Netherlands before gaining his coaching qualifications, including the UEFA A Licence.
