Packages for Norwich City’s first official Football Camp in Finland will go on sale on Monday, 20 January.
The camp will take place at Eerikkilä Sport & Outdoor Resort following the Club’s partnership being agreed last month.
With expert coaching from City legends Grant Holt and Adam Drury, the camp – which is open to boys and girls aged between 12 and 15 – provides the opportunity for players to experience the training programme of Premier League stars, and maybe even follow in the footsteps of Teemu Pukki!
Holt was one of City’s greatest ever strikers and captains, having played over 150 games for the Club and scored 15 goals in his first-ever Premier League season against the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea. A genuine Club legend, he won the prestigious Player of the Season award three times in a row!
Drury is regarded as one of Norwich City’s greatest ever defenders and captains, playing over 300 games for the Club. He was part of the famous City side that beat Manchester United in 2004, defending against the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney, and Paul Scholes.
Drury said: "The facilities are first class, we’ve had a look around and it's perfect for the soccer camps we are going to be holding. We will have a range of ages and abilities so the facilities can cater for everybody.
"We want to see the youngsters come along to have a good time and enjoy themselves. Hopefully they can learn a little bit of what happens at Norwich City Football Club of how we train and how the first-team train. But also it’s about them enjoying themselves, working hard and learning a few life skills.
Holt said: "Every player is different so we need to do a little bit of finishing, passing and defensive work, doing basics and techniques so there will be a mixed bag. We will definitely be doing some finishing to see if they can replicate how Teemu Pukki does it for Norwich. We all know his finish is fantastic, one of his main strengths so we will be incorporating that in the training sessions at camp.
"It will be fantastic and a great opportunity for girls and boys to come and learn different things and see how we do it. We're really excited.
Ben Tunnell, Head of Commercial Development at Norwich City, expressed on behalf of the club: "I would like to thank the entire team at Eerikkilä Sport College, particularly Managing Director Petri Jakonen for being so accommodating and helping us to provide what will be a unique and special experience."
