A group of year 5 & 6 children spent the morning at the Wham Stadium learning about the club for a school project they are working on.

Children from Benjamin Hargreaves Primary School in Accrington are all learning about the town and this particular class chose to base their work around at Accrington Stanley FC.

The group were led around the stadium by Stanley Trusts Lee Walsh and Elle Kayley who told them all about the history of the club and interesting facts about the stadium and what its like on a matchday.

The children got the chance to sit in the dugout, the Founder Members Lounge  and even the changing rooms which, according to the children ‘smelt like sweaty feet’

The children returned to school with lots information ready to complete their project!
