As part of the Barnet FC Affiliate Club programme, three of the Barnet Football Club’s first team visited affiliate club Super Skills Soccer at their half-term football camp at Claremont School in Harrow.
First-team players Ben Wynter, Dale Gorman, and Reece Hall-Johnson held a Q&A session with the Super Skills Soccer players, which gave the young players an opportunity to ask their burning questions to professional footballers.
The children then took part in a crossbar challenge against the Barnet players. Wynter, Gorman, and Hall-Johnson then watched the children demonstrate their 1v1 skills.
After the session, the BFC players spent time signing autographs and posing for photos with the Super Skills Soccer players.
Super Skills Soccer owner, Harsh Mandavia said “When the opportunity to affiliate with Barnet FC was presented to us, it was a no brainer.
With over 350 children at Super Skills, we are delighted to offer them the chance to become a Bees Member so that they have access to tickets and support our local club! Barnet FC in return have been great at supporting Super Skills by offering us many benefits. One of the most recent highlights being having first team players visit us at our Half Term Camp to inspire our children through a Q&A session, take part in a crossbar challenge against them and round it off with an autograph signing session!”
One parent said, “Thank you so much to Super Skills and Barnet for creating this lovely memory for my son. He couldn’t stop talking about it when he got home!”
We really appreciate, Foundation manager Dan Barton, and the players for taking the time out of their busy schedules to generously support Super Skills!”
It’s a great opportunity for any local club to join the Bees affiliate programme and push it out to their members so that children can take inspiration from being able to watch the Barnet players at discounted prices, and also to meet them in person and ask them questions to motivate themselves so early in their football journey.”
We are looking forward to blossoming this affiliation in many ways for many seasons to come!”
The Affiliate Club programme is an initiative aimed at bringing local grassroots clubs closer to Barnet FC and London Bees by offering them exclusive benefits.
