The children had a fantastic time on their visit to Darlington Football Club last Wednesday night. Their behaviour was impeccable and they were a credit to themselves, their teacher, their school and their parents. The whole group were fun to be with and they were excited about going to see the players and manager in the dressing room before the game. As it happened the players were more nervous than the children! During half time the children played a small sided game on the pitch in front of the main stand, cheered on by a crowd of about 1,400 – and they produced a fantastic little game! At the end of half time they ran off the pitch to the applause of fans on all sides of the ground.
A lot of people, both fans and club officials commented throughout the visit about the group, about how polite and well-mannered they were, it was lovely to hear!
I would have no hesitation inviting your school to visit us again, the children were all stars, please thank them on my behalf.
