Cottonera United held its first meeting with its players last week during which the committee and newly-appointed coaches addressed the players who are full of motivation and enthusiasm to start playing for the nursery in the coming season.
Nursery President Stephen Spiteri explained in detail the hard work done by him and his committee and the various difficulties they are facing. He explained how tough it was for the nursery to find coaches willing to train these youths.
Cottonera United did its utmost to publicize its call for application, through local sport websites and newspapers but when contacted, coaches have so far refused to join the nursery. Another problem was trying to get a full-size pitch for training sessions.
Spiteri, however stressed that despite these difficulties, the committee would not give up on these youths, since they believe in their talent and passion for football as thanks to these players the game will be boosted once again in Cottonera.
The Cottonera United President emphasised on the importance of discipline during training sessions and competitive games.
“No player, even the finest one, has his role guaranteed. Guarantee can only be given to those players who consistently attend training sessions and show that they truly want to be Cottonera United players,” insisted Spiteri.
During the meeting, the coach of the Under-17 side Charles Attard and that of the Under-15 team Anton Grech explained how training sessions will be held and how these sessions would lead to the selection of the A Team and B Team of Cottonera United.
The new official kit of Cottonera United was presented during the same meeting.
Meanwhile Cottonera United is seeking to recruit assistant coaches for its teams. All those interested, in possession of a C Licence or better, can apply by sending an email to [email protected] or by contacting Stephen Spiteri on 79373836.
