Swansea's local links

Swansea City is the nearest Premier League soccer club to Wexford as the crow flies, so it makes sense for them to engage with the locals.

And they have teamed up with All Blacks to host a summer camp on Wednesday and Thursday, August 17 and 18, in Casey Park, Mayglass, from 10 a.m. to 2.30 p.m. both days.

The camp is open to all boys and girls aged seven to 14 of all abilities. Advance booking is open until July 31 costing €49.

Standard single person booking from August 1 to August 16 is €55, and this includes the full Swansea City kit of jersey, shorts and socks.

Online booking fees apply, but should you require direct booking (non-fee), contact club Secretary Niall O'Callaghan (087-1323186), event co-ordinator Linda (087-7670344), or e-mail summercamp@allblacksafc.com.

There will be full coaching by Swansea City Academy coaches, and talent spotters from the club will also be present.

This is the latest interesting link-up between a professional club in the United Kingdom and a Wexford League schoolboys outfit, following in the footsteps of Sheffield Wednesday and Bree United.
