James Horsfield and Stephen Humphrys attend local school visit

24 September 2018

Iron first team players James Horsfield and Stephen Humphrys both visited Oasis Academy Henderson Avenue last Thursday afternoon.

They arrived at one of the schools that are partnered with the SUFC Trust, who deliver PE sessions to primary school children.

The midfielder and forward both got involved in a different sport on this occasion, as the young learners were practising their basketball skills. The duo got involved on their own individual team before posing for a group photo at the end of the session.

The PFA's Community Liason Executive and former Scunthorpe United midfielder Dennis Leman was present for the visit as he observed the player visit before asking the duo to complete a questionnaire on the club's involvement within the community and the importance of it.

Leman, who played 38 times for the Iron between 1982 and 1984, scoring three goals, made a similar visit last season when former striker Paddy Madden visited the club's summer soccer camps.

Scunthorpe United CSET aims to bring the football club and the community closer together and there is no better way of doing that than inspiring the next generation of Iron fans while coaching them in our school sport coaching programme.

They deliver sessions in many schools in North Lincolnshire throughout the week; we aim to offer diverse and high quality sessions that are age appropriate and adhere to the national curriculum.

All of their coaches are FA level 2 or above qualified and have a fully enhanced DBS check. We offer so much more than just football activities, all our coaches are qualified to deliver multi-sport activities.
