On Monday 6th November Newport Players and County in the Community visited Malpas Court Primary School to meet with pupils and hand out tickets for our next fixture.
Newport Players, Harry Charsley and Jonny Maxted joined members of County in the Community team to attend Malpas Court School to get involved with day-to-day activities, run a Q&A session, play some football related activities and hand out tickets to Newport’s next fixture against MK Dons this coming Saturday.
The players visited the school as part of the EFL's 'week of action'. This is where the EFL invite all 72 member Clubs to unite to highlight the impact they have on their communities as a collective.
Goalkeeper, Jonny Maxted thoroughly enjoyed visiting the school, having a chat with the pupils and listening to their important questions: "We (Harry and Jonny) had a fantastic day talking and interacting with the students," he began.
"I think it’s important to get all of the community behind us, because who knows, some of them (the students) could hopefully play for the County, one day!"
One of the highlight's of Maxted's day was handing out tickets to the students for this weekend's visit of MK Dons at Rodney Parade: "I hope to see some of the pupils this Saturday, come and support us from the stands!"
As well as engaging at Malpas Court School, County in the Community are running numerous activities and initiatives over the coming week to show the club's commitment to working closely with the community not just this week, but throughout the season.
