Children who have been attending holiday Soccer School and Activity Club at Accrington Stanley Community Trust got a surprise this week as the entire first team squad visited them.
Players had a go at Accrington’s inflatable target before the children got the chance to ask them questions about what its like to be a footballer. They then got the opportunity to get their pictures taken with the players!
Stanley striker and last seasons leading goalscorer Billy Kee explained ‘its great for us as players to get involved in the local community and get the youngsters excited about Accrington Stanley! Some of the kids showed off their skills to us and I’m sure there is some future stars to look out for!’
The community trusts head of sport Lee Walsh said ‘visits like this are so exciting for the children who love to meet the players and interact with them. We work hard to make Accrington Stanley more visible in the community and visits like this are a great way of doing so, hopefully some of the young children will be inspired by today’s visit’
