A female football superstar gave some Sleaford primary school pupils an inspirational afternoon to remember recently.
England Women’s football Captain, Team GB Captain and Lincoln Ladies Captain Casey Stoney paid a special visit to Church Lane primary school last week to put the school’s league winning football team through their paces.
She held a training session for the team before taking part in a question and answer session in the shape of a ‘press conference’ held by the year six pupils. They were writing a biography on the football star and gleaned the information from her by asking questions, ranging from her childhood to her rise to success and her aspirations for the future.
Then afterwards she held a full-school assembly and talked to the children about their aspirations and how they can pursue their goals, not just in football but in all sports.
Emily Dix, school PE co-ordinator, said: “She was fab! She communicated really well with the children and really listened to what they had to say, I’d love to have her again.”
