On Monday 22nd January, Jak McCourt, Jordan Sinnott, Bradley Barry and Sid Nelson visited Palterton Primary School to talk to the students about respect and about their careers in football.
The Chesterfield FC players spoke about respecting everyone in football. Whether it be officials, backroom staff, the opposition or fans, the players said that everyone need s to be given the same amount of respect.
The quartet were then asked some questions by the pupils. The children at Palterton Primary School asked some great questions like ‘How did you get into football?’ ‘What type of food do you have to eat to become a footballer?’ And finally, ‘Why do love football?’
The pupils then got the chance to get Chesterfield shirts, football boots or a piece of paper signed by the first team players.
Jak McCourt said, “I love these player visits as it gives us the chance to teach the next generation about respect in football or even about how myself or the other lads got into football.”
