Bromley Football Club were delighted to visit Bullers Wood School for Boys on Monday Morning, to provide a very different start to the week for students!
First team player Richard Brindley and Community Manager Matt Hall attended the event, with Brindley giving an insight into the life of a professional footballer, with a particular focus on the topics of Fitness and Nutrition in Sport.
Mr Collins, head of PE at the school, commented; “We’d like to thank Richard and Matt for coming in this morning and giving up their time to speak to all of the students in Year 7. I thought it was great and gave a real positive message about being resilient but believing in yourself as a person. The students found it very informative regarding a footballer’s nutrition and fitness and this delivered a positive message about looking after yourself and eating the right things to help in relation to performance. In addition, it was interesting to hear how disciplined Richard has to be on a daily basis. These are all important messages for our boys during their education in all their lessons at Bullers Wood School for Boys.”
The morning began with an introduction from Matt, to which many of the students announced that either they played for Bromley in out Youth Section, or were avid supporters!
Brindley then spoke about his life as a footballer, and how his journey started out in the game, offering some valuable advice to youngsters hoping to pursue the game. He also discussed the importance of studying whilst taking part in Sport, as well as the importance of fitness and a healthy diet, tying in with one of the students’ recent topics.
In addition, the Club donated free tickets for this Saturday’s match against Maidstone to all students at the school, including a discount for parents!
The Club would like to thank Mr Collins and Mr Thornton for inviting us to visit, and we look forward to coming along again soon.
