Barry Plant & Melbourne Victory FC Clinic- Carwatha Football College 

 

On Monday 18th of February 2019, Carwatha Football College students and primary students in grades 2 & 3 were lucky enough to be involved in a Melbourne Victory FC clinic. Recognised as the most supported and currently the most successful club in the league to date, Victory has won four A-League Championships, three A-League Premierships, one Pre-Season Challenge Cup and one FFA Cup, the only club to have won all four domestic trophies in the modern era of Australian soccer. 

 

The clinic at Carwatha college was filled with plenty of fun and games and included a visit from three professional A League senior football (soccer) players from Melbourne Victory FC.  Defenders Storm Roax, George Neidermeier & striker Jai Ingham took time out of their day by engaging in a clinic with Carwatha College students and teaching them to love the game. Students had a fantastic time and really enjoyed the event.
