BURTON Albion Men’s first team captain John Brayford and Sam Hughes visited a kids soccer camp today.
The central defenders were grilled on their toughest opponents, hardest matches and their footballing favourites amongst other questions. After the Q&A, the lads joined in the all important tournament matches before having a penalty each. Hughes was between the sticks and Brayford passed on some hints and tips.
Burton Albion chairman Ben Robinson was also a spectator at the session as he supported the event, as well as watched his Grandson in action.
The visit was the second by a first team player recently as last week striker Gassan Ahadme also visited a soccer camp.
John Brayford said: “It’s amazing to see so many kids getting involved with Burton Albion and football as a whole. There were some tricky questions in there and the kids definitely know their stuff. Hopefully they become the Brewers of the future!”
Community manager John Widdowson said: “The connection between the club and the community trust is amazing at Burton Albion. To have so many players visiting community events really cements the bond. The club has always put its communities first and today was just another example of that.”
The soccer camps are running all over the school summer holidays and end on August 25th at two different locations, with one taking place at the Community Football Centre and the other at Holland Sports Club in Barton. There’s lots of football fun and games on each day across our two locations so don’t miss out.
