YOUTH players from Ardrossan Winton Rovers' academy had the chance to enjoy world renowned coaching over the Easter holidays.

As a partner club of Coerver Coaching, Winton youngsters got a treat far better than any chocolate egg.

That was because coaches from the Portuguese giants Benfica and Sporting Lisbon came to take their Easter Monday session.

The clubs are known for producing some of the biggest talents in world football.

The Sporting academy helped produce one the greatest players of all-time in Cristiano Ronaldo.

While Benfica have produced a conveyor belt of talent, such as Bernardo Silva, João Cancelo, Rúben Dias, João Félix, Victor Lindelöf, Renato Sanches and Ederson,- to name but a few.

So it is fair to say that when coaches Fransisco and Tiago brought their one day clinic to Winton Park it was very well attended.

A spokesperson for Winton's academy commented: "On the whole the sun stayed out and all involved had a fantastic experience which was arranged by the youth academy executive in conjunction with Coerver."
