Tyler and Jorge have a kickabout

2 March 2016

Nottingham Forest academy graduates Tyler Walker and Jorge Grant visited Chetwynd Primary Academy yesterday to celebrate National Playground Football Day.

The players handed out signed home shirts to 30 pupils, who were taking part in Capital One’s initiative to preserve the tradition of young players participating in lunchtime kickabouts, and engaging with the sport in general.

Midfielder Grant said: “I think nearly everyone’s first memories of playing football come from the school playground, so this is a really important thing for today’s kids who are growing up with so many distractions.

“Hopefully Tyler and I have helped them appreciate how fun it is to get outside and play with a football, rather than a phone or iPad, and we have helped set them on their way to becoming the Forest stars of the future!"
