Learning to Play the Spanish Way

On the 18th September 2013 Mr Cragg took two of our most talented Year 8 footballers to a coaching roadshow, hosted by Spanish 'La Liga' club Valencia who are over from Spain working on various projects here in the UK as part of the Inspire Sport programme.  Hope Chivugo and Alfie Appleby were selected to attend the event along with students from other Leeds schools, where they were involved in various training drills similar to those which have produced Spanish international stars such as Xavi, Iniesta and Mata.

Whilst he was there, Mr Cragg got involved in the coaching side of things, taking part in a session called Coach the Coaches.  He came away with a plethora of resources and ideas to take back to the PE department.  All in all it was a succesful trip.  Mr Cragg commented "hopefully we will soon have the Crawshaw football teams playing with that Spanish style in no time!"
