Six Fleetwood Town youth players headed out into the community on Friday to take part in summer sports camps session around the Fylde Coast.
The Community Trust are currently hosting their annual summer sports camps at Poolfoot Farm, Carleton Green and Shakespeare Primary School – and if you’re interested in being part of it all, you can find all the details HERE!
Straight after their training session on Friday at the club’s training complex, the players quickly got changed and went their own ways to different locations to surprise the children who have been attending the camps during the school holidays.
Development Squad players Drew Baker and Ollie Leggett – who both featured in Town’s final friendly match before the start of the season - went to Carleton Green and took part in games and of course the dreaded question and answer session. The lads picked up the hockey sticks and played games with the children – it was great to see their competitive nature isn’t just on the grass!
At the same time, Connor Teale and Max McMillan trekked into Fleetwood to go and meet the kids at Shakespeare Primary. It was an interesting meet-up as the children were doing a handball session, with both players taking part!
In the third of three visits, Under-18s Theo Butterworth and Hermann Daha headed down to the Soccer Sports Camp at Poolfoot Farm and took part in the sessions with smiles on their faces throughout.
Mike Tallentire, School Sport Educator for the Community Trust, said: "It was great for all the young players to come out into the community and see the children at the three summer sports camps.
“The children were really excited to see the players and it just helps build relationships within the communiuty and also the football club. We hope this can continue as we head into an exciting time here at Fleetwood Town."
