Striker Adam Armstrong was left impressed with Blackburn Rovers Community Trust’s Easter Football and Activity Camps at Ewood Park.

The 21-year-old, on loan from Premier League side Newcastle United, attended the first Football Camp session of the Easter break, which was held in the Indoor Centre.

Armstrong, who regularly participated in similar camps in the North East when he was growing up, had nothing but positive things to say about Blackburn Rovers Community Trust.

“It has been a great laugh meeting all of the children,” admitted Armstrong, who played in a number of small sided games with the keen young footballers.

“They all want to just play football and the Football Camps ran by the Trust are really good for the children.

“I used to go to similar camps when I was younger and I used to persuade my friends to come with me and hopefully they will do the same.”

Armstrong, who has netted seven times in 12 appearances for Rovers since his arrival at the start of 2018, praised the Trust for collecting the North West Checkatrade Community Club of the Year as part of the 2018 EFL Awards.

He concluded: “The award just shows what is going on behind the scenes and how well we are doing both on and off the pitch.”

The first week will see the camps run from Monday 26th to Thursday 29th March. The second week will be from Tuesday 3rd to Friday 6th April.

A superb value-for-money offering, each day costs just £12 per child, or £40 if you book all four days in a week, based on a 9am to 3pm schedule (registration from 8.30am, with 'After Camp' sessions available from 3pm - 5pm) at the Blackburn Rovers Indoor Centre at Ewood Park (near to the Bryan Douglas Darwen End Stand side of the stadium).
