Fleetwood Town players and staff visited Primary schools in Fleetwood on Tuesday afternoon, spreading the Christmas spirit to local children, with the event organised by the Community Trust.
Manager, Lee Johnson was joined by Junior, Brendan Wiredu, Phoenix Patterson, Jack Marriott and Josh Edwards.
The Manager said: “We absolutely loved meeting the children and it looked like they enjoyed meeting the players as well. It was great to get in and about the local community.
It was lovely to see that everybody is behind us. We would like to wish everyone a merry Christmas.”
Thanks to donations from the squad and management team, they were able to provide over 2,300 children in Fleetwood with a gift this Christmas, followed by a Fleetwood Town FC match ticket for an upcoming fixture. The children had their pictures taken with the players and were given the opportunity to ask any questions. All the players and staff went from class to class, taking part in festive activities with the children.
Fleetwood Town Community Trust CEO, John Hartley added, “We were delighted to facilitate the Christmas visits earlier in the week across the Primary Schools in Fleetwood. Footballers are often seen as role models and they have the power and the platform to make a positive difference to the lives of others, especially during the festive period.
We would like to thank all partners for their contribution towards the Trusts Christmas appeals.”
On behalf of Fleetwood Town FC and Fleetwood Town Community Trust, we would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
