Barnet Football Club and Bees in the Community recently visited Stag Lane Primary School to give a talk to students as well as open the floor to answer their questions.
First-team players, James Callan and Connor Smith spoke to students about life as a professional football and the importance of teamwork and resilience as well as what challenges they faced inside and outside of football and how they overcame them.
Year groups 3,4,5 & 6 all attended the session and engaged with the players by asking questions about their careers and how they deal with obstacles in life.
Stag Lane were also our Community Club of the Week in the build-up to our home game against Notts County. Many of the students from Stag Lane attended the fixture as well as some lucky students that got to lead the team out as matchday mascots.
Community Manager, Daniel Barton said: “We feel it’s really important for our players to be seen as role models in our local community.
“Callan and Smith have done the football club really proud today, and taught the students many lessons in regard to life, teamwork and not giving up.”
