COMMUNITY: James Brown visits St Margaret Mary school

Youngsters give United right back a grilling

11 October 2017

Defender James Brown popped along to St Margaret Mary Catholic Primary School on Wednesday afternoon to meet year's five and six following their visit to Brunton Park as part of the Community Ticket Scheme last weekend.

The children conducted a thorough question and answer session where they asked James about his career, his hobbies, his favourite subject at school and what it was like for someone who lived so far away to play their football in Carlisle. 

Speaking after the event, James Brown said: "The children were absolutely fantastic. They have clearly put a lot of time and effort into preparing their questions and it was a pleasure to be able to share some of my experiences with them. 

"This is the first time I've ever done something like this and I can see why the lads enjoy it so much. I'd like to thank everybody at St Margaret Mary school for making me feel so welcome."
