Video Blog: Former Bristol City manager Lee Johnson hosts development session for Millfield footballers


Millfield footballers recently took part in a professional development session with former Championship league management duo Lee Johnson and Jamie McAllister. The students were able to experience a simulation of a professional training session, including structured practices and games, strategy presentations and a Q&A with the managers.

The day was also beneficial to Millfield’s 19 football coaches, who were able to learn from the top management team and apply their knowledge to coaching over 15 teams at Millfield.

Football is Millfield’s largest participation sport across both genders with almost 400 students involved in the programme and 3 girls’ teams with nearly 60 players. The senior players have an opportunity to experience a programme that is equivalent to Academy Cat I standard.

In this video blog, watch the sessions and hear from Millfield's Director of Football, Darren Robinson, as well as former Championship manager Lee Johnson.
