Blackpool FC Stars Visit Schools as part of Fit2Go

Blackpool FC players Armand Gnanduillet, Dolly Menga, Christoffer Mafoumbi, Nick Anderton and Joe Lumley made surprise visits for Year 4 pupils at two local Blackpool primary schools.

Armand Gnanduillet, Dolly Menga and Christoffer Mafoumbi brought smiles to Norbreck Primary School, where they got involved in ‘Q and A’. Joe Lumley and Nick Anderton were at Stanley Primary School getting involved in questions about their nutrition and lifestyle discussing Fit2Go.

Fit2Go aims to encourage children to lead a healthy lifestyle, take part in regular physical activity and to join in with local sports clubs and community programmes which will ultimately improve their overall health and wellbeing.

Pupils from both primary schools, threw a range of questions at the players including their physical activity programme, healthy lifestyle choices as well as many more.

On making healthy lifestyle choices Nick Anderton said, “It’s important that we eat well all week. As players, we eat our proteins, fruits and vegetables on a day to day basis.”

Dolly Menga urged the children to get involved in as much physical activity as possible. “When I was at primary school, all I wanted to do was play football. I’ve been playing football since I was 5 years old. A lot of young people are staying indoors instead of going outside and playing sports, so, I recommend all young people to get involved in physical activity.”
