Former national player and GFA Football Ambassador Marlon Glean recently assisted in preparing more than 200 children for their entry into the world of football. Last Saturday, Glean hosted a soccer clinic for boys and girls at the East Greenbush Soccer Club in New York.
This is the second year that he has assisted in the children’s preparation for the Club’s Recreational League which begins on April 30. The children who were divided into four groups (Kindergarten and 1st grade, 2nd and 3rd grade, 4th and 5th grade and 6th grade and higher) were taught the fundamentals including ball control and passing.
And for the first time this year, Glean was assisted by former Grenada National Players.
The children were very excited to meet former National Player and six time Major League Soccer All Star Shalrie Joseph and Grenada youth national player Chevy Augustine who recently graduated from the University of South Carolina Aiken with a degree in Biology. He received a scholarship to attend USCA through Marlon Glean Soccer.
Other organizations providing support were coaching staff and players from the University of Albany and Oneonta State University men’s soccer teams. Speaking about the successful clinic, Glean said,”It’s always an honour to contribute to the development of soccer.” Marlon Glean Soccer has been working with players and teams across the United States for the past few years.
