City duo attend Community Trust Disability Session

As part of the EFL’s Community Day of Action, Hordur Magnusson and Bailey Wright took time out from their schedule to visit Bristol City Community Trust’s disability football session.

The defensive pair participated in a range of skill sessions and small-sided fixtures at South Bristol Sports Centre, whilst socialising with the youngsters, posing for photos and signing autographs. 

Programme leader Karl Carberry expressed his delight in the player visit, saying: “Hordur and Bailey attending the session was a massive boost for the youngsters.

"Their faces lit up when they walked in and their performances subsequently improved because they were trying to show the players what they could do. There was a real buzz around the place.

"We had a number of parents watching and they also expressed their joy in seeing their children meet their local heroes – it was brilliant.

"The players were fantastic throughout the session and I can’t thank them enough for attending."

Wright commented: “It was really enjoyable having a kickabout with a few kids from the local area with varying disabilities.

“It’s nice to step away from the training pitch and come here to get involved in a community project.

“It’s a great setup here, there is a great bunch of people running the session and most of the participants come and support us each weekend so it’s nice for us to support them on this occasion.”

Magnusson said: “It’s been a great evening seeing them all play football - there is some great talent amongst the group.

“It was a pleasure to see them all and hopefully our visit developed their confidence which will encourage them to continue playing into the future."

The Trust deliver its disability session every Tuesday at South Bristol Sports Centre, 6-7pm, and it is designed for children who don’t normally get the chance to take part in football due to their disability.

This session caters for participants of all disabilities and with 35 youngsters attending each week, it is a fantastic opportunity for attendees to meet new people and socialise in a fun and safe environment.
