access_time 1 month ago

Football camps have returned as part of The O’s global program, as the relationship between Leyton Orient and IF Kolding have continued to grow.

“It’s a partnership we’ve now had for over a couple of years, and one that continues to grow,” said Steve Embleton, Senior Development Coach for the programme.

Over 36 kids were present for the camp, which is a fantastic number for a relatively small club – and one that will continue to grow, as Steve explains.

“At the moment, we’re over there three or four times a year, and we’re hoping to have two clubs soon – which is a really positive step.”

“We’re looking to set up a Leyton Orient Talent ID tournament too, as the club have great facilities, and are just on the border of Germany.”

It’s more than just a football camp though between the two clubs, as Steve recalls, the club have taken the O’s to their heart.

“Throughout the partnership, they’ve travelled to us too, and have bought u12 teams that have trained at the training ground,” said Steve.

“They’ve really taken Orient to their hearts – and even the parents are walking about with Orient shirts, which is great to see!”
