Lincoln City Starlets Support Literacy Aims Of Local School

Prior to Christmas, Lincoln City’s Apprentice players took time out of their training programme to spend some time delivering a reading workshop at a local primary school.

The players made the short trip over the River Witham to visit Sir Francis Hill Community Primary in Lincoln just over a mile from their Sincil Bank base. The Red Imps youth team players worked with Year 3 pupils who enjoyed their chance to speak to the footballers during a guided reading workshop.

Sandy Khanna, Phonics and Reading Lead at the school, hailed the day as a great success.

“The children really enjoyed reading to the footballers, and talking to them about their books,” she said. “Many of them were thrilled that the players had made comments in the reading books and hopefully it will inspire them to enjoy their reading even more.”

Damian Froggatt, the Academy Manager at Lincoln City, echoed those sentiments.

“The apprentices at this football club know that they are role models and that they represent the club in the local community,” Froggatt said. “Spending time with youngsters who look up to them as footballers not only develops their own social skills but also helps remind them of the privileged position they are in as apprentice footballers.”

“Hopefully the children will remember those few minutes they spent reading with a young Lincoln City footballer and it will inspire them to keep reading,” he added.
