They also took part in a training session and put this into practice on the training pitch in preparation for the next round! 🙌

Wowzers! What a great time we had last night at our PSFA Coronation Discos! 🇬🇧🤴🇬🇧🤴 The wonderful Liam ( Outalimits discos) was awesome as always giving us party dances which went down a storm, fabulous foam, chaotic conga’s and just so much energy and fun! Thank you 🙌🤩🤩

Also a big thank you to the PSFA and staff that came along and gave up their time to help - as always you were superstars - joining in and making sure we all had a great time and that everyone was enjoying themselves 💫⭐️🌟

But my biggest applause goes to our super ‘Kinson Kids’ who just threw themselves into having a great time…. they just had so much fun, it filled my heart to see them so happy, and literally all of them joining in with the party dances, and showing us their awesome moves on the dance floor! You are all just wonderful and fill me with pride! 🕺🏼🥳🙌😎 (just a few pics and I’ll post more once I’ve checked photo permissions)🤩

Wishing everyone a great long weekend - fingers crossed the sun eventually appears! ☀️ ☀️
