Former Hearts and Scotland star John Colquhoun was in Lewis this week to roll out the innovative Boxsoccer training programme to local youngsters.

Developed by highly regarded Scots coach Ian Cathro, a former coach at Dundee United and current coach of Spanish giants Valencia, Boxsoccer is described as the complete technical development programme - that comes in a box.

Boxsoccer is an innovative single set-up structure delivers everything from individual skill drills to position specific and group practices - creating a stimulating, memorable environment for the development of the young player.

Director of Boxsoccer Training John Colquhoun took the initiative to Back FC’s indoor centre this week to put the under-13 Western Isles Development Squad through their paces under the watchful eye of interested local coaches and club managers.

And Colquhoun hopes it can stimulate player development in the Hebrides.
