Keanu Marsh-Brown surprised Year 5 students at Maindee Primary School by joining them for afternoon assembly.
The students were delighted to welcome Keanu and had lots of taxing questions for him such as “how many goals have you scored in your career” and “what does it take to become a footballer”. One of the kids even asked if the twenty-six-year-old could coach the school team!
Unfortunately, Keanu had to turn that offer down but he did have a surprise of his own … tickets to Saturday’s League Two Match vs Yeovil Town.
The tickets form a “thank you” from the Club to the School for all the help they provide on every home match day. The school is used to provide additional parking for disabled away supporters, players and officials.
After the visit, Keanu Marsh-Brown commented: “We have a great relationship with Maindee Primary School and they help us out a lot on match day. It’s great to be able to thank them with a few tickets to Saturday’s game. I really enjoyed visiting the school today and engaging with some of our existing fans and some potential new ones. I hope my visit, and the fact we’ve had a great start to the season, will encourage some of these kids and their families to come along and support us on Saturday. I’ve heard the Club are running some family-friendly activities before the match too, so there should be loads for the kids to do before the football even starts.”
Maindee Primary School students Henry and Ava are delighted with their tickets.
Saturday’s match will kick off at 3pm with turnstiles open from 1.30pm. There will (weather permitting) be family-friendly activities on the grass area outside the stadium from 1pm as well as music and entertainment in the Stadium’s Marquee.
The Club will also be hosting volunteers from the Marrow for Marley foundation who will set up swabbing stations around the stadium. (Find out more).
Why not stay for the match?
