City quartet engage in community activity

Four members of City’s first team squad made a surprise visit to Bristol City Community Trust’s half-term holiday camp on Tuesday.

Frank Fielding, Hordur Magnusson, Niclas Eliasson and Jamie Paterson braved the weather to attend FIVES Soccer Centre, South Bristol Sports Centre – the venue for the Trust’s football fun camp this week.

The players received a warm reception from the 240 youngsters in attendance - a record number of participants for an individual day - before taking part in small-sided matches, posing for photographs and signing autographs, while helping to distribute the certificates of achievement.

Community Trust chief executive officer Dan White said: “A huge thanks goes to the four players for taking time out of their busy schedules to interact in our camps.

“We have record numbers of players this week and their attendance helps to create a fantastic atmosphere and it sets the tone for the the rest of the week.

“These players are looked up to by the majority, if not all the children at our camps, so it is great for them to interact with their heroes in a fun, safe and enjoyable environment.”

Limited spaces are available for the remainder of the Trust’s camp, so book now to avoid disappointment.

The Trust will be delivering holiday camps throughout the Easter holidays, with the dates to be released in due course.
