TNS YOUTH KEEPERS IN SAFE HANDS
Grenville Millington is coaching the TNS Scholarship Youth keepers.
A WELSH non-league legend is helping TNS Scholarship youth players to improve their goal-keeping skills.
Grenville Millington won eight amateur caps for Wales and represented the North Wales Coast FA in a career that saw service at Queensferry Wanderers, Oswestry, Chester, Rhyl, Brighton, Holywell, Wrexham and Connah's Quay Nomads.
He later became goalkeeping coach at Wrexham and subsequently Chester City.
He is now spending a couple of days a week coaching youth keepers Rob Ablewhite, Matt Kirkham and Dan Edwards.
The brother of 21-times capped Tony Millington, Grenville was the recipient of a special award from the FAW recently for his services to the non-professional game in Wales.
But perhaps he is best remembered for causing a Chester league game to be abandoned in 1981, when a goal collapsed after Grenville collided with a post!
