Verwood First School, which has produced top footballers England’s Ben White and Chelsea FC’s Tino Anjorin, is continuing its support for the ‘beautiful game’.
The Reception year were put through their paces by staff from the AFC Bournemouth’s Community Sports Trust.
Georgia Matthew, Early Years Lead at Verwood First School, said: “The children really enjoyed it.
“They worked on their skills and played a game. The coaches were great and really encouraged them.
“Those who weren’t hugely into football are now much more interested. And who knows, in the future one of these children might be pulling on the England shirt.”
David Staddon, one of the coaches, said to afcb.co.uk: “The club’s community trust reaches 4,000 people a week – from two-year-olds to 99-year-olds.
“We love working with Reception children as they clearly love being outside running around.
Verwood First School is part of Wimborne Academy Trust (WAT).
