Blackpool FC goalkeepers Sam Slocombe and Myles Boney made a special visit at Norbreck Primary Academy this week for Blackpool FC Community Trust’s Easter Sports Camps.
Easter Sports Camps are well underway with the Trust running this week’s Camp at Norbreck with an additional three locations next week. Over 70 children were delighted when they saw Blackpool’s number one and two come in and surprise them.
The pair were quizzed on their training regime, healthy lifestyle choices and the final games of the season which could lead to promotion. On his nutrition, Sam said, “I tend to eat the same stuff most days. For breakfast, I have cereal and toast and then for lunch, I’ll have chicken and vegetables and for tea, it might be eggs. It’s important to get my protein and carbohydrates throughout the day.”
Myles discussed his training regime and praised the coaches who are improving him everyday. Myles said, “I’m really developing myself as a goalkeeper and the coaches are helping me progress everyday. It’s important we stay fit, so our training regime can be intense whether we are training or in the gym.”
The Seasiders are pushing for promotion and with 6 games to go, Sam believes Blackpool have every chance of going up. Sam said, “We’ve really given ourselves a chance. Since the new year, we’ve been playing some brilliant football and we’ve only lost a few games. We were unlucky last week to lose against Luton but we have a massive game on Saturday which we need to win. We’ve got some really talented players within the squad and we’ve got a fantastic team spirit.”
