AFC Fylde first-team players Josh Kay and Owen Evans visited Medlar-with-Wesham Church of England Primary School on Thursday afternoon!
Josh and Owen headed down to one of AFC Fylde Community Foundation’s partner schools to join in a PE lesson with pupils.
The Coasters pair took part in the session which was based on how to improve balance.
And winger Kay was pleased to see the great work that the Foundation do every day.
He said: “It’s been good. The kids have enjoyed it and it’s nice to see them taking part in physical activity and enjoying themselves, so it’s been fun.
“It’s a big thing for the kids to be keeping fit, so it’s nice to see them enjoying themselves and having fun which is what they should be doing really at this age.
“The Foundation are a big part of what the club do in the community. A lot of kids, all they want to do is have fun and progress in life, so it’s great.”
Kay believes it is important that the Fylde players have a presence in the local community and hopes they can inspire the next generation of Coasters supporters.
He added: “As players, you hope that the kids can take something away from it to see us out in the community, and hopefully take some inspiration from it.
“It’s important that we go out there and show our faces as much as we possibly can.”
