As part of the build-up to the Doncaster game at the weekend first-team players Morgan Feeney and Owen Moxon visited Stanwix Girls U12s at Soccerworld on Tuesday night.
The girls will be with us as part of The Cumberland Community Ticket Scheme in A Stand on Saturday, and they were delighted to welcome the lads along to their session.
“It’s been a big part of the message this season that we want to be doing as much as we can around the local community,” Morgan said. “Visits like this are fantastic.
“It was really interesting to talk to the players and hear about the games they play, and they had a good few questions for me and Mox as well.
“It was a really enjoyable evening and we thank them for inviting us to come along.”
“When you see the smiles on the faces when you go to an appearance like this it reminds you just how much it matters to be out there,” Owen commented.
“As a dressing room we all want to be doing everything we can to show that being part of a club like ours matters, and we know how much taking a bit of time to meet groups of all ages helps with that.
“The girls were brilliant with us on Tuesday night, we had a great time, and I hope they enjoy their day at Brunton Park on Saturday.”
The Cumberland’s Community Ticket Scheme means thousands of youngsters will be able to watch The Blues for free once again this season. The scheme provides local primary schools and community groups with up to 300 free tickets for home football matches.
The Cumberland’s sponsorship of the scheme has now been in operation for just over 12 years and the community-based partnership took another step in 2013 when the club’s A Stand was rebranded as the Cumberland Community Stand.
Strong supporters of the Blues, The Cumberland had previously sponsored the East Stand and a number of other initiatives in and around Brunton Park.
