On Monday, February 5, Chesterfield players Sam Hird and Aaron Ramsdale visited Scarcliffe Primary School to chat with students about their favourite things and what you have to do to be a footballer.
The Spireites centre-back and goalkeeper talked about how practicing hard on the training pitch and eating well has helped them win league titles and International honours respectively.
The students then got to ask a variety of question which would help them with the biographies that they are creating on the players. The children got to learn a lot of things whether it be the players love for Moana or their favourite players or footballing inspirations.
Ian Marsh, Headteacher of Scarcliffe Primary School, said, “We have been working with the club this year and it’s amazing to be able to welcome first team players into school to work with the children. The fact professional players give up their time to inspire children is a great credit to the work the club is doing to reach out in the community.”
Aaron Ramsdale commented, “It’s brilliant to come out the schools in North Derbyshire and put smiles on the kids faces. We got a lot of questions so it’s goof to give back what we know whether it be how we started football or what we do building up to a match.
