Leon Barnett and Jordan Flores join in with Summer Soccer School.
- Leon Barnett and Jordan Flores at Abraham Guest Soccer Schools.
- 40 youngsters playing at Soccer School.
- Two weeks left of holiday camps.
Following his first team home debut at the DW Stadium in the Capital One Cup match against Bury on Tuesday evening, Wigan-born Jordan Flores joined teammate Leon Barnett at one of the Community Trust’s popular summer Soccer Schools yesterday.
Leon and Jordan, who used to attend Wigan Athletic Soccer Schools as a youngster, joined in with the 40 junior players at the Abraham Guest Academy camp, playing in several 5-a-side matches and providing assists for the youngsters.
They then both chose teams to take on in an accuracy challenge, trying to score past mannequins in the net.
Jordan said: “My head’s still buzzing from Tuesday’s game, I really enjoyed myself and then coming out to the Soccer School is great to give something back to the fans.
“I used to come to these summer schools when I was younger hoping to be where I am now, so hopefully it’s something good for these players to see and aspire to.
“The camps are doing a really good job and are well organised – much better than they were when I used to come!”
