Barnsley Football Club’s Adam Jackson and Jordan Williams paid a visit to see children at Soccer Camps and Short Breaks disability sessions this afternoon.
The player visit took place in the form of a question and answer session where all of the kids had a chance to speak to both players.
Adam and Jordan then signed Show Racism the Red Card squad photos for the 2018/19 season for all of the participants across both sessions.
Both players are familiar with working with Reds in the Community, having attended previous Soccer Camps and other player visits in the community.
We caught up Williams to see what the young full-back had to say about his afternoon with the children.
He said: “It’s been good, signing autographas for the young kids and making them happy. The disability group – it’s been good to make them smile. It’s good to give back to them. It’s good to show that they’re not different. Everyone is the same, we’re all pulling together and on the same wavelength. That’s what I used to be like when I was a kid so to give back to the kids now is good. It’s massive to show to show that we’re a community-based club. We’re on the side of the community and we want to help out.”
Soccer Camps are available for boys and girls aged 5-14 of all abilities. Places remain available on the final day of this week while a four-day discount is available for next week.
