The Community Trust's first school-based player appearance of the new academic term saw new signing Greg Cunningham and popular youngster Lewis Travis make a special trip to Wensley Fold Primary School, in support of the Trust’s Premier League Primary Stars programme.

In a time-honoured format, the pair joined in with PE sessions delivered by Community Trust coaches, before answering questions from several year groups within the school, explaining life as a pro, the top names they’ve faced during their careers and their pastimes outside the game.

They also oversaw a skills challenge involving many of the pupils, giving them a chance to demonstrate their flicks and tricks to a packed assembly call.

Irish international Cunningham even managed to convince one of the teachers to give the contest a go, with her backheeled flick drawing great acclaim from the whole school!

Any local schools who would like to join the fun of the Premier League Primary Stars project – which offers both classroom and playground activities for all primary school year groups – can find out more by contacting Amy Taylor via or 01254 508126.
