This week, we welcomed the Arsenal Gap Program Coach, Mr. Fahad Al Shamsan, to Pinewood in order to practice with our Boys’ Soccer team. The purpose of Coach Al Shamsan’s visit was to identify talented and skillful players among our Pinewood student body. Mr Fahad Al Shamsan is a graduate of Clark University, Massachusetts, USA, where he played on the Soccer team and founded and coached their Soccer Club. Since 2012, he has been a member of the Arsenal Gap Program where coaches are trained in the Arsenal Soccer Schools and other international projects. Coaches in the program also receive their UEFA Coaching License. Coach Al Shamsan coaches and scouts youth players aged 7-16 in London.
Our students had a great time playing with the coach and showing off their talents. This is the beginning of many activities that we have planned for our cooperation with the Arsenal Football Club.
