LATICS’ USA INTERNATIONAL AND DEBUT GOALSCORER ENCOURAGE YOUNG FOOTBALLERS TO FOLLOW IN THEIR FOOTSTEPS

16 August 2018

Antonee Robinson and Callum Connolly joined in with the soccer school fun with over 30 Latics mad youngsters this afternoon.

  • Antonee Robinson and Callum Connolly visited Standish High School.
  • Duo took part in Wigan Athletic Community Trust’s soccer school.
  • Latics are running various activities for children throughout the summer.

It was an afternoon to remember at Standish High School today as first team stars Antonee Robinson and Callum Connolly made a surprise visit to the Community Trust’s summer soccer school.

The pair, who joined on season-long-loan deals from Everton earlier this month, helped to improve the football skills of over youngsters on what was an unforgettable day for some of the club’s junior supporters.

Latics’ official charity have been running soccer schools and dance camps throughout the summer, and have also delivered Fit and Fed sessions thanks to support from Wigan Council for young people to get involved in different activities and catch up with friends whilst having a nutritious lunch provided. 

For Callum, who scored for Latics in last weekend’s game against Aston Villa, it was his second community appearance for the club having visited Orrell Holgate Primary School with Will Grigg two seasons ago, while Antonee was making his first in Latics colours.

Speaking at the event, USA international Antonee, said: “It was a real good laugh and the kids were so enthusiastic to meet us. We had lots of fun and it was amazing to be able to take some time out of our day to make their day.

He added: “I’ve had a fantastic welcome from the Wigan supporters since I’ve joined the club, and to meet so many young fans today was really good.”

The Trust’s soccer schools take place in a friendly environment, ideal for boys and girls aged 6-14 years old to develop their skills and make new friends.
