Students from Samuel Barlow Primary Academy in Clipstone were recently visited by Football in the Community, being presented with certificates and prizes following the schools competition of the 50/50 Penalty Shootout.
Youngsters from all year groups took part to raise money for the school and Football in the Community, receiving certificates, medals, commemorative footballs and match tickets for their efforts, depending on how much they’ve raised – with the individual who raised the most, also receiving a signed match shirt.

Melanine Brown, Academy Principal at Samuel Barlow said “The kids love the fact that Football in the Community are regular faces within school, they really love the activities and the PE element which gets them mobile, and gets them to understand the importance of exercise which is really important.
“I’m really proud of the kids they’ve raised a really good amount which is going to make a massive difference to both ourselves and Football in the Community who do a really great job all year round”
Gary Shaw, Community Manager said “The kids love our activities, the relationship our staff have got with the school, kids and staff, makes it really enjoyable to deliver here and keeps the kids hungry to do well.
“A massive well done to all the kids who have taken part, their continued support is a delight to see.”
