Young Spartans coached by NFL stars

Four lucky members of the Spartans youth programme were selected to attend an American football coaching masterclass held by the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars.

The youngsters were selected by the NFL UK to attend the two-hour session held at the home of Saracens RFC, Allianz Park.

They were coached by Jaguars players Will Rackley, Cameron Bradfield, and Brandon Deaderick, along with the cream of UK coaches, in a variety of drills that demonstrated to the young Spartans the skills they will need when taking to the field in 2014.

All four players enjoyed their experience, and will surely benefit from such a once-in-a-lifetime experience as they take their first steps in what we hope will be long footballing lives in the black and gold!

Essex Spartans Welfare Office Louise Duff was in attendance and snapped a variety of images of the players in action – click here to view a selection of these fantastic pictures!
