Entire first team squad make community visits...
STOKE CITY delivered some festive cheer ahead of the Christmas period by spending time out and about with members of the local community.
Every first-team player attended one of several organised events in Stoke-on-Trent, with supporters handed the opportunity to meet their favourite Potters stars.
Geoff Cameron, Kevin Wimmer and Tom Edwards visited the YMCA in Hanley where they joined other Club representatives in helping serve a seasonal community lunch, before the trio of players posed for photographs and signed autographs.
Meanwhile, skipper Ryan Shawcross, England international Jack Butland and fan-favourite Peter Crouch attended the nearby Donna Louise Children’s Hospice to deliver presents as well as taking time to meet the children and their families.
Switzerland international Xherdan Shaqiri and Saido Berahino gave their best advice to budding stars of the future at the Club’s Academy Dome - where they were participating in a soccer school hosted by the Club’s Community Trust.
Elsewhere, the rest of the first-team squad spread out to visit several local schools before they finished for the Christmas break, including St Thomas More Catholic Academy, St Margaret’s Ward Catholic Academy, St Theresa’s Primary School, Waterside Day Centre in Newstead and Wolstanton High School.
