There's some talent at Dragon Park this week
Stoke City striker Peter Crouch has joined former Wales internationals Danny Collins and Brian Stock on the 2016 UEFA B Licence coaching course at Dragon Park.
The former England star was joined by teammate Ryan Shawcross and former Stoke City star Darel Russell on the week long course, which started on Monday.
Among the diverse group of candidates, Goytre United manager Andrew Hill and Port Talbot Town player Kurtis Mach were joined by the likes of former Tottenham keeper Ian Walker, former Cardiff City striker Stuart Fleetwood and Andy Payton, formerly of Celtic.
Tracy Hamm, Ricky King and Eleri Earnshaw also flew over from the USA to take our top class coaching course.
After spending much of Monday in the lecture rooms the group of 20 candidates stepped out onto the Dragon Park pitch today to observe a series of sessions taken by FAW Trust coaches before planning their own sessions in the afternoon.
On Wednesday the first candidates will be delivering practical sessions as part of their qualifications.
