Bruno's Party Surprise

Bruno Martins Indi

CHRISTMAS came early for a group of lucky youngsters from Pirehill First School in Stone, courtesy of the Stoke City Community Trust and a member of the Club’s first team squad.

They were treated to a Primary Stars Christmas Party after winning a competition organised by the Community Trust and as well as enjoying festive food and games, they were treated to a visit by defensive star Bruno Martins Indi.

The Dutchman was on hand to join in the celebrations with Louise Walmsley’s Year 4 class and it was clearly an experience he enjoyed.

He said: “I never got the chance to experience a footballer coming along to my school when I was young and I hope the children at Pirehill enjoyed themselves; they certainly looked as though they did.”

The Community Trust asked classes to tell us in no more than 100 words why they felt they deserved a Stoke City Primary Stars Christmas party.

This was Pirehill’s winning entry drawn selected by Mark Hughes: “They are a wonderful group of children who work well together as a team and always enjoy a challenge.

“Their reasons are: We never give up, we have the resilience needed to go for our goals.  We’ve always got our eye on the ball and aim to achieve the best.  

“Class 9 study, try hard, are never off-side, are keen and embrace life.”

Stoke City Football Club would like to thank the Community Fund sponsor Sabit Ltd and Booker Cash & Carry in supporting this project.
