Primary Stars Schools take centre stage at “The Den”
Schools take centre stage at “The Den”
More than 150 school children from across the Boroughs of Lewisham and Southwark took part in the first ever Millwall Community Trust Schools Primary Stars football tournament at The Den earlier this week.
The tournament saw 15 different schools play six-a-side games on the pitch.
Premier star Officer Charlie Pearce said: “Seeing the children’s face when they saw the pitch for the first time was absolutely brilliant. Some of these children wouldn’t get the opportunity to come to a football ground if it wasn’t for the Schools Partnership programme , so it’s immense that we’ve got this facility to provide to them. The children loved the day, I’ve never seen so many happy, smiley faces.”
Riverside Primary School teacher Sophie Alder said: “Our school were extremely excited to be involved in the tournament. They had a great time. The children did really well and enjoyed themselves. Well done Millwall Football Club.”
