Players pay visit to Matrix

1 October 2013

Four first-team stars took time out to visit children from Beechview School in The Matrix on Monday afternoon.

Leon Johnson, Stuart Lewis, Sam Wood and Josh Scowen were all present as they answered questions from the kids, before taking part in a speed-stacking competition.

Club captain Lewis told "It’s very important as a club that we interact with the community and show we are supporting all the schemes in place with the kids.

"It’s good to get our points of view across to the youngsters, and if we can educate them in any way on the sporting side of things as well as stressing the importance of doing well in school then it's a bonus.

"I looked up to football players when I was their age so it’s really important that these kids can do the same with us."
