WORLD Cup fever made it to Mays Hill recently with a football skills clinic at Fraeme Park for two Holroyd football clubs.

Wenty Waratahs and Wentworthville Uniting Church FC took to the field with Wanderers players on hand with tips to help aspiring footballers.

Wentworthville Uniting Church FC Secretary Steven Dearth the clinic — part of the Wanderers Community Football program — gives kids the "best in the west".

"The Wanderers are a symbol of the west and having access to them has been important to our club because they can help us grow as the interest in football continues to grow in Holroyd," Mr Dearth said.

"Having the clinic gave the kids a chance to learn more about the sport they love from a team they look up to — and we look forward to maintaining our relationships with council and the Wanderers as we work towards building our healthy community."

Holroyd mayor Nasr Kafrouni said through Holroyd council's sponsorship of the Wanderers, youth had been given access to coaching that "they never had before".
