"I used to coach for Premier Sport, and was with the company for three years before I became a professional footballer so I have had first-hand experience of working with the company.
Premier Sport is a well run organisation completely geared towards getting the best out of the children in a fun, informative way in a variety of sports across the spectrum.
It's easier to interact with kids through sport – they find it less monotonous than the classroom and with Premier they really engage – learning to work in teams while getting fit and healthy, to enjoy a brighter future."
