Players visit local primary schools

This week, the Bromley FC Community Sports Trust, along with first team players, visited a number of local Primary Schools to promote our new after school clubs and community activities, as well as inviting all children and staff to Saturday’s FA Trophy Semi-Final against York City. 

Schools visited included Oak Lodge, Unicorn, St James and Harris Orpington with Corey Whitely, Chris Bush, Luke Coulson, Connor Parsons, Mark Cousins, Louis Dennis, Scott Wagstaff and Ben Margetson. 

The players took part in question and answer sessions with the pupils as well as talking about resilience, before handing out free tickets to every pupil at the schools for Saturday’s game against York. 

Pupils at Harris Academy Orpington were also presented with certificates by Louis Dennis and Mark Cousins for their participation in this term’s after-school clubs. 

St James’ pupils were also treated to being joined at their after-school session by Ben Margetson, who joined in with sessions and chatted to pupils, before handing out information on our schemes. 

Nick Gearing from Harris Orpington said: “Our partnership with Bromley FC as a club and the Community Trust is growing and giving real value to our students. It started when I suggested to Bromley FC about running an after-school club, which the Community Trust has now started to do this in several schools. Today’s visit from the players is helping to inspire our children and helps them to understand that professional football is on their doorstep with many opportunities available for them to both watch and aspire to play for Bromley FC.”
