FOOTBALL centres have been set up across Kent in a bid to get budding soccer stars on the road to a professional career.

More than 200 children aged five to 12 will be invited to Football Advanced Centres held in Maidstone, Bromley, Erith and Gravesend organised by Grass Roots Soccer Schools.

Some young hopefuls have been selected from thousands of children already attending Grass Roots courses and from next week, coaches will be on the lookout for more talent to join the Advanced Centres from next April at the Arsenal Development Centre.

Coaches will be recruiting at soccer workshops during the October half-term in Crayford, Sittingbourne, Redhill, Maidstone, Sandwich, Dartford, Gravesend, Wallington, Tundbridge Wells and Herne Bay. Invitations have already been delivered to budding footballers but spaces are still available for a chance to win a place at the Advanced Centres from April 21, 2009.

The age groups from nine to 12 years will also work on vital areas such as consistency, finding space and decision making.
