Over 30 youngsters took part in Buxton FC’s annual football camp.

Activities included football skills, techniques and activities, street soccer and a crossbar challenge, all culminating in a day of competitions.

The children were also given a chance to meet and greet two Buxton squad members, who also took part in a question and answer session.

Each participant was given a free family ticket to a Buxton game and club shop discounts.

Bucks Community Coach Chris Hill said: “It has again been a great success.

“Despite some typical Buxton weather all the children have been excellent and enjoyed every minute.

“Credit must go to the coaches from the University of Derby, everyone at the football club and Harpur Hill Primary School for providing such excellent facilities.

“It is great to see our local football club as a focal point of the community and introducing Buxton FC to its next generation of supporters.”

The Bucks will be holding an Easter Football camp between Tuesday April 2 and Friday April 5.
