Peebles duo begin new coaching firm

Peebles footballers Chris Anderson and Geri Rossi have started a new venture aimed at getting youngsters playing the beautiful game.

The pair launched CG Elite Training this month in their home town and hope kids can enjoy the sport, while perhaps finding a future star.

Rossi started off with Hibs and is currently playing and coaching with Peebles Rovers as the club tries to revive its fortunes.

Anderson continues to play for Lowland League side Spartans, having had spells at Gala Fairydean and previously Dunfermline Athletic.Sessions for three, four and five-year-olds in the Drill Hall in Peebles started last Saturday and continue this weekend at 10am.

The duo have also begun coaching for primary seven to S1 kids on Wednesdays at Whitestone Park at 4.15pm and goalkeeping sessions are scheduled to be starting in the next few weeks. Booking is not required for any of the sessions.
