The camps are taking place at Norbreck Academy, Unity Academy, Hawes Side Primary School and Marton Primary School. The Trust delivers Sports Camps during the school holidays to involve charity in a variety of activities.

The players got involved in a ‘Q and A’ and played ping-pong with the children. Gnanduillet thoroughly enjoyed his visit and said: “The children asked some brilliant questions and I really enjoyed coming. These player visits are all about giving back and it’s great to see so many of them wearing Blackpool FC jerseys.”

Blackpool FC Community Trust will be running a community day a week tomorrow, completely free of charge.
