All 72 EFL Clubs came together on Tuesday for the EFL’s Day of Action to demonstrate the positive impact football can have in changing young people’s lives.
United players Mark Ellis and Gary Liddle went along to the Neil Centre where our walking football and mental health football sessions were taking place.
Jack Bonham and James Brown visited Scotby School, where our Community Sports Trust coaches were delivering a multi-skills session, working on jumping technique with children from reception and year one.
Captain Danny Grainger went to see our friends at Jigsaw Hospice with Jamie Devitt, Luke Joyce and John O'Sullivan. The lads helped paint a bedroom at the hospice before playing with the children.
The rest of the first team squad - Nicky Adams, Morgan Bacon, Richie Bennett, Louis Gray, Hallam Hope, Mike Jones, Samir Nabi, Ashley Nadesan, Cole Stockton and Tom Parkes - went to Cumwhinton School and took part in activities with all year groups, including sack races, three-legged races, dancing, skipping and building structures.
