Training scheme will teach soccer skills
(Western Mail, Business section)

An unique three-way partner-ship has been forged to establish an innovative and exciting project to offer the unemployed new job and career opportunities and, at the same time, improve the soccer skills of young footballers in Gwynedd.

South Gwynedd enterprise agency, Antur Dwyryd-Llyn, Gwynedd Council's leisure department and Pornadog Foot-balL Club have joined forces to develop the "Football in the Com-munity" scheme.

The latter has employed two full-time coaches, professional footballers Paul Osahan, formerly of Gillingham and Halifax, and Paul Roberts who spent 1 g months at Wrexham before re-joIning Porthmadog.

Places are available for under 25-year-olds who are eligible for the New Deal scheme, or over 25-year-olds who have been un-employed for over 12 months. Participants can spend at least six months lull-time on the project and could achieve a European Union of Football Associations (EUFA) "C" Licence which will allow them to coach even at pro-fessional level.

It can also lead to a National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) level 2 in sports and leisure. Lawiching the scheme, Paul Osa-han, who holds an EUFA 'B' Licence and has played and coached soccer in Scandinavia and the United States said that Porthmadog FC was committed to raising playing standards within the area and would be working closely with Gwynedd Council's soccer development officer, ex-Welsh international Terry Boyle, to develop the project.
