Coasters trio surprise youngsters at Foundation's February half-term Soccer School!

AFC Fylde first-team players Josh Kay, Theo Richardson and Danny Ormerod visited AFC Fylde Community Foundation’s February half-term Soccer School last week.

Our popular Soccer School, which was held at Fylde Sports and Education Centre, was enjoyed by youngsters across the week, who had the opportunity to meet three Coasters’ players.

Joining in the fun, Kay and Richardson took on the role of managers for a small-sided game whilst Ormerod refereed.

Later on, the players were asked about their football careers in a Q&A session, and posed for photos.

Coasters forward Ormerod enjoyed his visit to the Foundation’s Soccer School .

He said: “It’s been a really good day with the Community Foundation, I’ve really enjoyed coming down and I’ve seen some good players and it’s been a really fun session.

“It’s really good that the kids can play football and enjoy themselves during half-term.

“Especially when you get first-team players coming, they get a really good buzz.

“As players, it’s important that we come and show our faces at these camps in the local community.

“At their age, I was always playing football and doing camps every school holidays, so it’s great to see them all taking part.”

The Foundation deliver holiday clubs throughout the year at three venues across Fylde; Fylde Sports and Education Centre, St Michael’s CofE Primary School and Bactive Fitness Centre.

Dan Monckton, Schools Service Manager at AFC Fylde Community Foundation, added: “It’s fantastic for the children to have the chance to meet some of our players. The lads have a big role to play for our local children in inspiring them to keep fit and enjoy football.

“I’d like to thank the players again for visiting and look forward to having some more lads down during the Easter Holidays.”
