Ainsworth delivers assembly at John Hampden

17 November 2014

Gareth Ainsworth was the guest speaker at an assembly at John Hampden Grammar School on Monday morning.

The Blues boss told the story of the club's recent trip to the World War I battlefields in northern France, where the players and staff paid their respects to the footballers who made the ultimate sacrifice 100 years ago.

The assembly also featured a screening of the special documentary made by Bucks New Uni students from the video footage and photos taken on the trip.

It was particularly poignant following a similar trip by pupils at the school, who also visited the memorial to the Footballers' Battalions in Longueval.

The assembly also gave Ainsworth the chance to deliver free tickets to the school for the game against Burton Albion at Adams Park, where all under 19s go free.
