Dozens of youngsters were taught the vital skills needed to become a footballer at Spalding United’s inaugural Tulips Community Soccer Academy.
The three days of activities were run by Tulips striker Andy Tidswell and first-team coach Marcus Ebdon.
The boys and girls aged between four and 12 joined the well-known faces to learn about the game and camaraderie while taking part in some football fun at the Sir Halley Stewart Field.
Following the three days, children who completed their time at the academy will receive a certificate.
Ebdon said: “We had some cracking weather and all the kids all got involved and really enjoyed themselves.
“The whole thing was absolutely fantastic!”
