Conneely, Hery and Hewitt visit holiday clubs

Accrington Stanley first team players Seamus Conneely, Bastien Hery, and Steven Hewitt attended our holiday clubs today at Accrington Academy.

All players took part in the inflatable penalty shootout game with the children and handed out the certificates.The children were delighted to be able to meet and speak to professional footballers and to receive a signed poster from the players.

Sarah Hunt, Holiday Club administrator stated: ‘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 Stanley fans in the Soccer school so to see their faces light up when the players walked in was lovely.’

Stanleys Captain Seamus Conneely commented ‘ 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 and hoped that  everyone had a fun day!’
