Former Norwich City star Craig Fleming lent his experience and coaching skills to Old Catton Juniors.

Fleming, currently part of Ryman League Lowestoft Town’s managerial set-up, was on hand with Norfolk FA’s Under-18 Cup-winning coach Ian Thornton at Old Catton’s Church Street home, where the duo put the youngsters through a series of drills.

The club’s coaches also picked up valuable tips on grassroots coaching and best practise for coaching youngsters.

Fleming and Thornton presented each child with a signed certificate and a skills CD to mark the occasion, as well as taking part in a question and answer session.
