Oldham Athletic Player Visit

22 October 2014

Oldham Athletic captain Liam Kelly and Connor Brown visited Mills Hill Primary School last week to support the school's programme currently being delivered by Oldham Athletic Community Trust.

The visit saw the pair spend time with both of the year five classes at the school, who each week have been taking part in futsal sessions delivered by the Community Trust coaches. In addition to the Thursday Futsal sessions, this term Community Trust coaches have also been delivering StreetCheer.

Liam and Connor spent half an hour with each class with the youngsters eager to learn more about the pair and what it is like to be a professional footballer. Liam and Connor explained to the children just how committed you need to be in order to become a professional football and were also able to give out one or two tips on leading a healthy and active life.

The visit was a part of the Community Trust's schools programme and was the first visit of the new school year. Every Thursday and Friday for the past few weeks children across the whole school have benefitted from expert Futsal and StreetCheer coaching during their PE lessons. Per week the Community Trust's schools programme works with over 500 children in a variety of different projects and schools. 

The visit was just one of many planned for the year as the Community Trust team continue to deliver their schools programme around the borough to both primary and secondary schools.
