Cover-More Travel Insurance and Arsenal Football Club announce free summer Skills School for next generation football superstars, taking place 2nd-3rd August in West London.

Exactly 19 years from the day Thierry Henry signed for the Gunners, young football fans will get the chance to train under the official club coaches, just as Arsenal’s all-time record goal scorer once did.

The kids will be put through their paces on a programme specially designed by the Arsenal coaches to develop their agility, control, speed and precision. Simon McManus who heads up the Arsenal Soccer Schools programme will lead the Skills School, assisted by Tom Hartley and Scarlett Hanrahan. Cover-More, Arsenal’s Official Travel Insurance Partner, will be providing lunch and refreshments, plus a bundle of football goodies including: exclusive Skills School jersey, drawstring bag and water bottle for each child.

Simon McManus, Head Coach, Arsenal Soccer Schools, said: “The Skills School programme provides young footballers with a great opportunity to train the Arsenal way in a safe, fun and friendly environment. We’re looking forward to teaming up with our partner Cover-More to help improve and develop the skills of every child who takes part.”

Glenn Broadhurst General Manager, Global Digital and Direct at Cover-More said: “As we head into our second season as an official partner of Arsenal, we’re really excited to be working with their talented coaches to give young football fans this amazing opportunity – we’re insuring for a strong England team at World Cup 2030!”
