Two coaches - Jitender Kumar and Kulwant Singh - from Youth FC of Rurka Kalan in Punjab were in Coventry to learn more about the professional game at English Championship side Coventry City FC.
The trip has been made possible by Coventry City FC through its Asian Community Initiative 'CCFC Asia', organised through the club's Associate Directors of Asian origin Jas Sandhu and Alan Malik.
The CCFC Asia initiative has seen the Sky Blues engaging with members of the British Asian community in Coventry and across Warwickshire as well as in India. There CCFC Asia has entered into a partnership with YFC Rurka Kalan in Punjab.
Last summer India defender Anwar, a YFC Rurka Kalan product, had come to Coventry for two week to train with the Sky Blues as part of the CCFC Asia initiative.
The two coaches Jitender Kumar and Kulwant Singh have been closely watching the training of the Coventry City Academy sides to learn things which they can use in their training sessions back home at YFC Rurka Kalan. Another aspect was science and nutrition something which is often lacking in Indian football.
Jitender Kumar told a local Coventry daily, "The level of what we have been allowed to see is above our expectations already."
"They have allowed us to watch three days training and we hope one day to take a couple of coaches back over to India to interact to our kids and train our coaches," Jitender added.
