United's keeper coach Dan Watson took his charges to the University of Cumbria's sports hall this afternoon to take part in the University Staff Health MOT by taking turns between the sticks for a very competitive and keenly contested penalty shoot-out.
Staff from the university underwent a variety of health checks, and were able to take part in a number of activities as part of the overall event.
Morgan Bacon, Jack Bonham and Louis Gray, under the guidance of Dan Watson, took turns in nets for the penalty shoot-out, with all proceeds raised going to the Every Action Has Consequences charity, which was set up in memory of Adam Rogers, who died following a bang to the head during a minor altercation on a night out in town.
“The players and staff are always happy to help out with community events like this,” Dan said. “With this appearance we’re also helping to raise a bit of money for an important charity, which is fantastic.
"If we're available, we like to come along, and this is a good example of how we get out into the local community and try to raise awareness of some important issues, as well as helping people to have a good time.”
Thank you to everybody at the University of Cumbria for hosting us today and for making us feel so welcome.
