Owls star backs half term Sheffield Wednesday Soccer Camps!

16 October 2014

  • Owls player supports soccer camps
  • Half term coaching available at Sheffield Wednesday
  • Soccer Camps massive success


Midfield man Giles Coke’s football talents were first noticed after attending his local holiday Soccer Camps and he is now encouraging children to go along and do the same.

Giles started playing regular football as a young teenager when he attended Soccer Camps at his local team, Queens Park Rangers.

Originally from Westminster, Giles began playing football with his brother at the local park but really took interest in the game when he started attending Soccer Camps such as those held by the Sheffield Wednesday Community Programme during school holidays.



It was from his participation on the QPR holiday coaching sessions that he was noticed by a community coach. Coke was then recommended for trials for the club’s academy and became a youth player for the Hoops, and from there, his career went from strength to strength.

The Owls’ Community Programme are now on the scout for future SWFC stars aged five –14 to attend their October half term camps.

The Soccer Camps, based at Sheffield Wednesday’s training ground at Middlewood Road and Retford Oaks High School, run throughout the school holidays and aim to develop play of the young footballers.

Half term camps run from Monday 27 October – Friday 31 October, from 9:00am – 4:00pm, priced at £45 for the week or £15 for one day. The Community Programme are also running a special ‘Freaky Friday’ fancy dress competition on the last day which will see the best dressed entrant win a prize!
