Leroy off to California to be a football coach

Leroy Scott is temporarily hanging up his walking football boots to take up a coaching role in California.  He is excited about this new challenge and everyone at the Club wishes him the Best of Luck.

"I am going to work  as a Football Youth coach for 3 to 4 months in early July . I really can't wait to get started. I left my employment after 37 years in August last year and decided to study for a football coaching qualification. I then applied for a few jobs and was successful for this role in America" said Leroy.  "It has been great fun taking part in the playing sessions at Dronfield and look forward to coming back and rejoining the rest of the guys on my return."
