On Thursday March 17, 2016, coaches from Dutch Premier League team Feyenoord Rotterdam ran a professional training session for VSSL players. Feyenoord staff was led by Mike Obiku (Former Nigerian World Cup player), with Peter Barendse, (former Feyenoord player), and support coaching staff from Surrey FC.
At least 40 VSSL players, coaches and volunteers enjoyed a 90-minute training session in the sunshine, ending with selfies, autographs and pizza. Former Feyenoord player Jake Lensky, a local Feyenoord representative, organized the event. Jake and Feyenoord are committed to ongoing involvement with the VSSL – an exciting prospect!
