A host of Blackpool FC first team players visited Blackpool FC Community Trust’s Sports Camps this afternoon.

Blackpool FC Community Trust have been delivering Sports Camps all week at Unity Academy, Our Lady of Assumption and Hawes Side Academy where hundreds children across Blackpool have been getting involved in sport activities. 

Elias Sorensen and Nathan Shaw made a special visit to Unity whilst Marc Bola and Myles Boney surprised the children at Our Lady. The player visits weren’t finished there, as Antony Evans and Matty Virtue visited Hawes Side.

During half-terms, the Trust run Sports Camps across Blackpool for children aged 5-14.

The Trust deliver daily football sessions as well as multi-sport activities such as handball, netball, dodgeball, arts and crafts, quick cricket, rounders and basketball. 

Myles Boney, who has been visiting Sports Camps for a number of years, said he always looks forward to getting involved in Sports Camps. “It’s a fantastic opportunity for children to come and get involved in fun activities and meet new friends from other schools. Me and the lads have really enjoyed coming to see the children and get involved in some of the activities. I’ve been coming to camps for a while and it’s great.”

Blackpool FC Community Trust Sports Camp Coordinator, Marc Joseph said, “Having the players come along to see the children always fills the camps with excitement. We deliver the camps from 8am until 5pm during school holidays and try to fill the days with as many different activities as possible, so getting the first team to come along and get involved always adds something a bit different and special.”
