Hunter, Schwabl and Biggins visit Carr Head Primary School

16 November 2017

Fleetwood Town trio Ashley Hunter, Markus Schwabl and Harrison Biggins took time to visit local children from Carr Head Primary School, Poulton on Wednesday afternoon.

They all interacted with the pupils, took part in small sided football sessions and happily signed autographs at the school.

The after-school session was delivered by Fleetwood Town’s Community Trust in conjunction with the Premier League Primary Stars programme.

Markus Schwabl, said: “For football clubs, it’s especially important to get the community involved and spend time with kids from schools, as we’ve all been there before.

“It’s important that the kids see that you’re just a regular person off the pitch. They can talk to you, ask you questions and just have a good time playing football with you.

“I remember when I was a kid and some football player came to my school, it was one of the best days of my life!”

Jason Sharp, Senior Sports Development Officer at Fleetwood Town Community Trust, added: “It was great to have the players down at the school.

“For the children to have the access to professional players and be able to interact and ask questions about their career is brilliant.

“It is important for first team players to support the Premier League Stars programme which engages school children through the power of football."
