The Premier League Primary Stars project had yet another player appearance this week as two members of the Rovers first team picture dropped in at St Antony's Primary School.

Left back Amari'i Bell and goalkeeper Andy Fisher both dropped in on a practical session of gymnastics before answering some gruelling questions put to them by the primary school children.

The duo watched from afar as a class of PE pupils went through their warm-ups before throwing themselves in to the action by attempting to perform a number of forward rolls.

The pupils of St Antony's then got their opportunity to put some questions to the professional pair, whilst both were placed on the school's 'throne'. Everything was covered from career aspirations to who they both supported as young boys.

The pair were then asked on where they've enjoyed their football the most, and Amari'i was happy to oblige.

"I've represented a few clubs, mostly, on loan but Rovers is where I've been at my happiest. Its a great club and I've been here for about a year now. It has gone so quick."

Upcoming Rovers goalkeeper Andy Fisher spoke about his journey through football.

"I've only really represented Rovers, to be fair. I previously played for a couple of youth teams in the Wigan area.

"I joined the club when I was a youth player a few years ago in 2013 and I've loved every minute."

The children were delighted at the players opening up about their careers so far and there was just enough time for a few autographs before ending school for the day.
