Town been busy in the local community over last seven days

23 April 2018

Fleetwood Town Community Trust had a busy week with four school player visits in the local community.

A number of Town's first team players went along to extra-curriculum activities at Manor Beech, Larkholme, Thornton and St Wulstans Primary School to participate in physical activity sessions.

Monday saw Ash Hunter, Wes Burns and Kyle Dempsey turn up to Larkholme Primary School to take part in a cricket session lead by Community Trust coach Mike Tallentire. The three players joined in, and tested the children's skills in batting and bowling.

At the same time, Markus Schwabl, Joao Morelli and Sebastian Des Pres surprised the children at Manor Beech Primary School in Cleveleys to join in their football session and sign autographs. The Town players were impressed with the skills on show on the day. 

The player visits weren't over and as Thursday came around, six more first team players paid a special visit to Thornton Primary School and St Wulstans where the children engaged with them in a question & answer session, alongside after school activities.

Paddy Madden, Ash Eastham and Toumani Diagouraga were supporting 'Know the Score' campaign at Thornton Primary School and joined in with the school's new after school club activity Boccia - a Paralympic sports introduced in 1984.

Whilst at St Wulstans, Lewie Coyle, Cian Bolger and Alex Cairns took time out of their day to participate in the hockey session, answer questions and also take pictures and sign autographs with the children.

This week players will be attending Stanah Primary School and Flakefleet Primary School for more activities and questions from the children.
