Posh duo and Peter Burrow visit Hampton Hargate Primary School.
Jack Baldwin, Gabriel Zakuani, Peter Burrow and Marketing Executive Neil Gilby paid a visit to Hampton Hargate Primary school yesterday (Thursday) as part of the Peterborough United School Partnership Scheme.
Over 600 children enjoyed a full school assembly which included a video presentation and a short Q and A with the players.
The School Partnership Scheme has seen over 40 schools sign up with the club with this number increasing by the week. Each school will receive a pair of tickets to three home matches at London Road to every single child, completely free of charge as the club look to secure the future.
Gilby continued: ‘I cant emphasise enough how important this scheme is to the Football Club, and it’s my job to get over to the children that being a football fan is not about sitting on the sofa watching Sky Sports, it's about going to a stadium, soaking up the atmosphere and watching the action with your own eyes, and lets not forget 90% of these children are home grown, they are Peterborians and this is a massive plus to any football fan. We want to get our children supporting their local teams.’
