Brian McClair Joins Coaches for Atlantic Football Development Camp


Former Manchester United striker Brian McClair will share his world-class football skills with Trinidad and Tobago’s top 50 primary school footballers at the seventh annual Atlantic Football Development and Life Skills Camp, which gets underway this Saturday December 17 at the QRC Grounds.

McClair, who won 15 trophies as a player with Manchester United from 1987-1998, will be joining coaches Eamon Mulvey and Kevin Ward from the Manchester United Academy, who have been lead facilitators of the Atlantic-sponsored initiative since its inception in 2010.

Camille Salandy, Atlantic’s Head of Sustainability and Corporate Communications said that with McClair’s assistance this year, the Football Development Camp will expose its young participants to even more techniques and game advice from the international field of play.

“A former Manchester United player of the stature of Brian McClair brings an extra dimension of skill and knowledge to this year’s Development Camp, adding to the already extensive wisdom and experience that coaches Eamon and Kevin already bring to the programme,” Salandy said. “All of us at Atlantic including our partners the National Primary Schools Football League, are looking forward to the impact that this trio of international veterans will have on the next generation of local footballers.”

The three-day camp will be held from December 17 – 19, and will feature special training for the top 50 boys and girls who played in this year’s Atlantic National Primary Schools Football League Competition. In addition to technical football practice sessions, the young footballers will also be exposed to workshops in life skills and life management, led by officials from the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee (TTOC).
