A YOUNG football fan has been training with top Premier League coaches after winning a national competition.

Reece Clark, eight, from Hemsworth, travelled to Stamford Bridge, home of Chelsea FC, after scoring first place in the contest, which was run by the team’s sponsor Samsung.

Reece, who plays for the Hemsworth Terriers, and his brother, Brad, were treated to a behind-the-scenes tour of the stadium, spent time in the dugout, press room and home changing room before walking down the tunnel onto the pitch.

The youngsters then travelled to the club’s Cobham training headquarters in Surrey, where they took part in a training session with Chelsea FC coaches.

Dad Jason Clark said: “It was an absolutely brilliant day, Reece and Brad loved every bit of it.

“The training session was great and Reece definitely picked up some tips that he can take to his team, the Hemsworth Terriers.”

Reece also snapped up a Samsung ES30 camera player as part of the prize.
