Paul Gascoigne is back helping coach kids football team

England legend Paul Gascoigne has taken back to football recently by helping coach a local kids team near Bournemouth.

Gazza, who is now 56, teaches kids who play for Dexter Sports Youth U11s Bengals skills of the game, and even supports the side at both home & away matches.

The ex-Tottenham man even shows the kids how to pull off his legendary overhead flick & volley goal that he scored against Scotland in Euro 96!

Gascoigne lives near the Bournemouth based club and said “I enjoy going down to help the kids in my local area.”

“I go to training and teach them some of my skills and old tricks. I love watching and cheering on the sideline on Sundays.”

Gazza also maintains a healthy relationship with the parents of his young pupils, often being spotted taking selfies and signing autographs for star-struck Mums and Dads.

Paul Gascoigne shares ‘disgusting’ story about Margaret Thatcher

Katie Davies, who runs The MNT talent agency who sponsor both Gazza and the kids’ club, and whose own son plays within their ranks said “Gazza is such a legend and has so much experience to share. The kids love him.”

Paul Gascoigne has been helping Bengals U11s football team learn the tricks of the trade on the pitch.

“It’s not many kids who can say they’ve got one of England’s best players coaching them.”

“Paul loves it and comes along to all the games.”

“He’s on great form and is still as canny as ever.”

“It’s amazing to see the reaction from other parents when he turns up on the sideline. Everyone wants a picture with him.”

Having Paul Gascoigne around certainly seems to be having a positive effect on the U11s Bengals, with the side having won their last 3 matches under Gazza’s influence!
