City quartet attend Trust's holiday camp

Youngsters at Bristol City Community Trust’s October half-term football camp were treated to a special visit from four of their City heroes this week.

Bailey Wright Eros Pisano, Nathan Baker and Niki Mäenpää took time out of their schedules to visit FIVES Soccer Centre, South Bristol Sports Centre to spend time with the youngsters in attendance.

The City quartet watched the participants compete in small-sided fixtures, before posing for photos and signing autographs, while helping to distribute the certificates of achievement.

“It’s great Bristol City Community Trust have something like this set up," said club captain Bailey Wright. "All of us have fun and take satisfaction from being able to put smiles on kids' faces and we shouldn't take it for granted. 

“These youngsters support us week in, week out, and these are the ones that make the difference for us on matchdays so it’s nice to be able to give back.”

Chief executive officer Dan White added: "A huge thank you must go to the players for visiting our camps.

"We try and make this a regular occurrence as each set of camps we run and it always goes down well with those in attendance.

"The majority of our participants are City supporters so to be able to spend time with their footballing heroes in an environment such as this, is amazing to see," White continued.

"We will have had over 150 children engage in our camps each day this half-term, which is really encouraging. It's always rewarding to see youngsters playing football in a fun and safe environment and they all leave with smiles on their faces, so we hope to see them return in the future."

The Trust's camps cater for youngsters of all abilities, aged six-11, with the emphasis firmly on participation and enjoyment.

Dates for future camps will be released in due course so keep an eye on the website.
