This morning the pupils of Randalstown primary school were delighted to be joined by Linfield FC defender Josh Robinson and club director Stephen Shaw.
The boys and girls in P6 and P7 were able to ask a multitude of interesting and varied questions.
During the Q and A session, the pupils learned that Josh probably enjoys keeping clean sheets more than scoring goals; you are unlikely to find him dancing to celebrate a goal as he prefers a knee slide and that he values winning the league over the whole season slightly more than a cup win… but he just loves to win! The pupils also learned about the history of the club.
Josh shared his passion not only for football, but sport in general; encouraging the children to find something they enjoyed and to keep active.
After the questions Josh showed the children dribbling and passing skills, and the children took part in two drills.
They brought along two trophies that the club are the current holders of - the league trophy, known as the Gibson Cup and the League cup. The children had a chance to hold the trophies.
A brilliant morning for the children in P6 and P7, and the school wanted to thank Josh, Stephen and Linfield FC for coming to Randalstown.
