SPECIAL MATCHDAY EXPERIENCE FOR YOUNGSTERS

27 September 2021

BURTON Albion first team strikers Tom Hewlett and Louis Moult were on hand to greet three special young visitors to the Pirelli Stadium.

The three youngsters were all given a money-can’t-buy matchday experience courtesy of the Free Kicks Foundation.

The Free Kicks Foundation is a nationwide charity whose aim is to provide football-related activities for ill, bereaved and disadvantaged children, giving them a day to remember with their favourite football club.

Burton Albion Community Trust works closely with Free Kicks and ahead of the Brewers home game with Lincoln City welcomed the three youngsters to a kickabout on the community pitch with the two Brewers players.

They were then treated to a meal in the Albion Suite before watching the game.

Tom Hewlett said: “It was great to meet the three young fans and help them enjoy their Free Kicks experience. All the players love meeting our young fans and hearing what they have to say about the football club.”

Both Tom and Louis are currently recovering from injury but making good progress.

Tom, who is the club’s Charities Ambassador, said: “We always want to support the community trust but especially while I’m recovering from injury, I want to give us much back as possible and support all the great work that’s being done.”

Paul Gaskin, BACT’S Community Engagement Manager, said: “It’s fantastic that we are able to provide these opportunities for youngsters who might otherwise miss out.

 

“We want to thank Free Kicks for their support and Tom and Louis for coming over and making the day extra special for them.”
