Bromsgrove was extremely fortunate this week to welcome Terry Butcher to the school.
Terry Butcher is an ex-professional and international footballer who played 77 times for England. He played at 3 FIFA World Cup Finals including captaining England to the semi-finals of the 1990 FIFA World Cup. Since retiring from football Terry has coached at 8 professional clubs in UK and Australia.
During his visit to Bromsgrove, Terry took the entire Year 9 group for a coaching session and later in the day lead a training session for some of our football academy students. Both groups of students were exposed to modified versions of drills that Terry has used with professional footballers and both groups were set the high standards that have made Terry such a success.
During the afternoon Terry worked with the Year 6 Reading stars group before taking them for a football training session. Later Terry posed for photos and signed autographs for students….and a handful of staff!
It was a great day during which the students thoroughly enjoyed learning from an international sporting superstar. A huge thanks must go to One Sport Media Management and Kevin Tarrant who have organised Terry’s visit to Thailand and kindly brought him to Bromsgrove.
