FUTURE Ayr United stars could be developed through coaching classes organised by the Somerset Park club's Football Academy.

Skipper and defender Nicky Devlin passes on tips to youngsters at the Ayr United Football Academy Mini-Kickers class staged at the Citadel Leisure Centre on Fridays, from 4.30pm until 5.30pm.

Mini-Kickers Play and Discover Centres are designed to be a fun, sociable and enjoyable introduction to football.

While learning and honing skills on the ball, they will also be improving and developing other physical skills including balance, spatial awareness, flexibility and co-ordination.

The children will also benefit socially as they play fun games with their friends and interact with experienced, qualified coaches.
