Game On Skills provides training qualification for Denaby teen footballer

Cameron Till has been attending Game On England’s Denaby Football 5ives session, run in partnership with Doncaster Council and Denaby and Conisbrough Youth Club, since the session started in June 2018.

From the start his excellent attitude was noted by the coaches, with him always wanting to help those around him. Cameron had a real passion to pass on his footballing skills onto the participants in his session and the younger participants who attend the hour before, with him often coming early to help out.

Having just turned 16, Game On England funded Cameron through their Game On Skills programme to complete this FA Level One Football qualification. Since completing the programme Cameron has been volunteering on the programmes newly established Game On Girls session in Denaby, and hopes one day to become a paid coach on the programme. 

β€œI started going to the youth club and then [Game On England] started to run sessions for us in the 6 week holidays. I want to be a coach when I’m older and help kids become better players. Game On gave me the opportunity to do my Level One coaching badge and I really enjoyed it.” 

Cameron went on to represent England at the Coalfields Regeneration Trust’s Home Internationals Tournament held at the City Football Academy in June 2019.

He was awarded with the “player of the tournament” for his fantastic performance on the day.
