ARSENAL legend and TV pundit Martin Keown spent a day at Bristol Central Annual Football Festival  - and says he is impressed by the health of football in the city.

The 49-year-old former England international defender coached both coaches and youngsters at the week-long summer soccer school run by Bristol Central YFC, supported by McDonald

Keown was full of praise for the volunteers and the support from McDonald's that made the week-long football academy possible, with everything from drinks and fruit to cones and balls laid on.

"My favorite bit of the day is working with the youngsters themselves. I love seeing the way they respond. They are so impressionable at such a young age and some are doing stuff for the first time.

"I'm really impressed with the quality of the players and the quality of the coaching down here in Bristol. It's not about them becoming professional footballers, it's about them having fun and they are listening to the coaches intently and learning respect."
