Accrington Stanley’s Seamus Conneely, Bastien Hery and Steven Hewitt tested their shooting skills at the Community Trust’s holiday course.

The players took part in the inflatable penalty shoot-out game with the young attendees and handed out the certificates at Accrington Academy.

The children were delighted to be able to meet and speak to professional footballers and to receive a signed poster.

Sarah Hunt, Holiday Club administrator, said: “It’s brilliant to have some of the first team players take time out of their busy schedule to visit the holiday courses and meet the children.

“We had lots of Stanley fans in the Soccer School so to see their faces light up when the players walked in was lovely.”

Stanley captain Conneely added:  “It’s great to be able to get out in the community and meet young football fans especially Stanley fans. We enjoyed visiting the holiday club children and hoped that they all had a fun time.”
