Cornwall FA are delighted to share the details of the next coach development event which will see ‘The Skilful Player’ event brought to Penryn College on the 1st February 2022.

Earlier this season, Plymouth Argyle delivered The Skilful Player coach development event at Callywith College which saw over 40 coaches observe a range of coaching sessions put on by Argyle’s academy and first team staff.

Following this, Cornwall FA are pleased to share The Skilful Player coach development event will now be brought further West to Penryn College to provide the opportunity for even more of Cornwall’s coaches to gain insights from Argyle’s coaches.

The event will focus on developing the skilful player through the application of Plymouth Argyle’s core techniques. Argyle’s special guests will include First Team Coach Kevin Nancekivell, Academy Head of Coaching Lee Hodge, former Plymouth Argyle 1st team player and current Professional Development Phase Coach Jamie Lowry along with Head of Cornwall Recruitment and Development Paul Rowe.

Argyle’s coaches will work with local youth Cornish players to demonstrate Plymouth Argyle's Core Skills in practice for coaches to observe. They will provide discussion points and key coaching insights during their delivery to help coaches understand how to develop the core skills within their clubs. This event will also provide opportunities to network with other local Cornish coaches.
