BURY'S Tiki Taka Football Academy is offering the opportunity for players from the age of six and seven to join them and learn to play like Lionel Messi.

The coaching club, which has run since 2010 in partnership with Everton FC, aims to teach young footballers how to play the possession-based style perfected by European heavyweights such as FC Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

Once established, youngsters will play for one of the club's teams where they can showcase the skills in front of professional football club scouts.

Those wishing to join are invited to Broad Oak Sports College, Hazel Avenue on Saturday 30 May at 12:30pm. Membership is £30 per year, which includes a free kit.

For further information contact Grant Hinchcliffe on 07970 887031, email grant.tikatakabtinternet.com or visit the club's website at www.tikitakafootballacademy.co.uk.
