Rovers duo Derrick Williams and Marcus Antonsson made it a day to remember for children at St. Aidan's Church of England Primary School on Wednesday afternoon.

The players dropped in on a Premier League Primary Stars session, answering the pupils' questions before taking part in a game of dodgeball.

St. Aidan's is one of 14 local schools involved in the programme run by the Blackburn Rovers Community Trust, and students from years 3, 4, 5 and 6 were present for the special event.

Speaking afterwards, Antonsson said: "It's been nice to come down and get involved, as always. It's great to see the kids and their reactions when they see us.

"I met a few of them who come to all of our games, so it was a big day for them and lovely for us that we've been able to see them today."
