Pompey verdict: Individual errors, dips in form and poor decisions made

Have your say

Ricardo Rocha will be on hand this week to offer youngsters expert playing tips.

The Fratton favourite is popping into the two-day Pompey coaching course at Milton Cross School.

The event takes place from Thursday until Friday, from 10am-3pm each day.

The course is designed for youngsters aged 5-14.

It offers the chance to take part in fun-filled football-based activities with children of the same age.

For part of the time, Blues star Rocha will also be in attendance.

And it will be an opportunity for young Pompey fans to have a chat with the central defender and get his autograph.

The course is priced at £28, which covers the two days.

Those attending are required to bring football shorts, shin pads, a shirt and socks.

Boots or trainers are allowed to be worn, although studs are not permitted.

Warm waterproof clothing is also requested to be brought along, as are a change of clothes in case of bad weather.

There will be breaks for drinks and lunch so children should also bring with them a packed lunch and plenty to drink.

All coaches are CRB checked.

Anyone interested in attending can book by calling (023) 9272 8899 and speaking to Julie or Victoria.
