Children attending Accrington Stanley’s Easter Holiday Courses got a big surprise when 1st team players Marek Rodak and Shay McCartan nipped in to say hello and take part in penalty shootout!

Over 70 children have attended either the Soccer schools or Activity Clubs this Easter which will end on Thursday with all children receiving a free Easter egg. Marek performed well in the penalty shootout although quite a few children did manage to score past him! Shay McCartan also managed to get one past the keeper as well!

‘It’s great to see how excited the kids get when we attend events like this and its brilliant to see so many local children interested in Accrington Stanley’ Said McCartan.

Head of Sport Lee Walsh Thanks the lads for coming down ‘Shay & Rodak were brilliant with the kids, we would like to thank them for coming down and getting involved, the interest in Accrington Stanley is definitely increasing amongst local children and visits like this are a big contributing factor to this increase’
