A FEAST OF FOOTBALL AS BACT WELCOME THE PREMIER LEAGUE TROPHY

IT was a feast of football for primary school pupils at the Pirelli Stadium when the Premier League Trophy arrived at the home of Burton Albion.

Premier League Primary Stars is the new Premier League schools programme which was launched in the autumn term of 2016 to use the appeal of football and sport to connect and inspire.

Burton Albion Community Trust hosted the visit at the new 3G facility which has received funding from the Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund.

More than 20 schools were invited to take part in a festival of football on the 3G pitch and to have their picture taken with the Premier League Trophy, which was won last season by Leicester City.

Brewers first team players John Mousinho, Lee Williamson, Lloyd Dyer and Jamie Ward dropped in to have their pictures taken with youngsters.

Later in the day, the trophy paid a visit to William Shrewsbury School in Stretton where BACT delivered an activity programme.

Matt Hancock, Burton Albion Community Trust Manager, said: “It was a great to see so many youngsters enjoying the chance to play on our artificial pitch. We are grateful to the Premier League for bringing down the trophy and making the event happen.”
