PREMIER LEAGUE Burnley FC player Johann Berg Gudmundsson became the Clarets’ latest Premier League Primary Stars favourite as he visited Padiham St. Leonard’s primary school.
Premier League Primary Stars uses the appeal of the league and professional football clubs to inspire children to learn, be active and develop important life skills, with a view of supporting the development of children holistically and wholesomely
St. Leonard’s are one of over 30 schools involved in Burnley FC in the Community’s (BFCitC) Primary Stars programme, so, as a part of their involvement, they had the chance to embark on a collapsed curriculum day which included a full tour of the stadium, relevant workshops and a chance to play sports, such as football, at the Elite Training Centre.
The Iceland international, proudly sporting the UA logo on his arm, answered a brilliant variety of questions, ranging from what motivates him to some of his favourite moments playing football, as well as discussing how one of Primary Stars’ key themes, resilience, has helped him throughout his personal professional career in sport.
After answering everyone’s questions, Johann posed for photos with both the children and teachers before signing items for the excited kids.
