When the under 15s from Harrowby FC turned up for their weekly training session, they didn’t quite expect to be greeted by their coaches in full 80s gear.
But Saturday, July 30 was a training session with a difference, with players, parents and even the coaches taking part in a charity aerobics session to help raise funds for the club.
Led by local personal trainer and fitness instructor, Julie Simpson, the group took part in an 80s aerobic session lasting just over an hour. This was then followed by an hour’s worth of football training - exhausting!
Julie, whose son plays for the club, said: “It was brilliant, although I think they all need a bit more fitness training.
“We’ve managed to raise a great amount for the club so far, which will help go towards the upkeep of the pitch and social club events etc.”
A big well done to everyone who took part!
