Fabulous freestyle football skills for shoppers
3:33pm Tuesday 14th August 2012 in Sport
A EUROPEAN football freestyle champion came to Altrincham to show off his skills to shoppers and provide free workshops for children.
Professional football freestyler, Colin Nell, visited the Stamford Quarter on August 8 and 9, to perform some of the tricks that have made him one of the world’s best football freestylers, before helping children to learn some of the skills.
Colin, who has worked with professional footballers such as Wayne Rooney and is an FA licensed coach, was spotted in 2000 while displaying his array of tricks in a major Nike promotion at Wembley Stadium which attracted over 30,000 contestants.
Since then, Colin has enjoyed an outstanding career as a professional football freestyler and worked on high profile campaigns for the likes of Nike, Adidas, Samsung, Sky and music producer Timbaland.
Shoppers were stunned by Colin’s tricks which included balancing a spinning football on a pen held in his mouth, and performing intricate skills with smaller and smaller balls, from a football, to a tennis ball and even a golf ball.
