City trio attend BCCT holiday camp

Youngsters at Bristol City Community Trust’s summer football camp were treated to a special visit from three of their City heroes today (Tuesday).

Bailey Wright, Frank Fielding and Hakeeb Adelakun took time out of their schedules to visit FIVES Soccer Centre, South Bristol Sports Centre to spend time with the 100 youngsters in attendance.

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

Chief executive officer Dan White said: "A huge thank you must go to Bailey, Frankie and Hakeeb for visiting our camps.

"Earlier in the summer we also had Jamie Paterson and Liam Walsh take time to attend the camps and their engagement fills the participants with huge delight."

"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 have had over 650 individual children engage in our camps over the course of the summer, which is a record high. It's incredible to see this number of youngsters playing football in a fun and safe environment and they all left 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.

Spaces are still available on the final three days of the camp, priced at £10 per day.

Alternatively, the Trust will be running camps throughout October half-term (October 29th - November 2nd), with full details to be released in due course.
