Town duo take time out of pre-Sheffield United schedule to visit Chantry Academy

Grant Ward and Jordan Spence visited Chantry Academy this afternoon and took part in a football-based lesson with their students.

Suffolk FA were in attendance as they launched their #LoveFootballLiveFootball campaign which Town are supporting for the second successive season which aims to promote the sport in Suffolk.

The pair were on hand to give the youngsters some advice with their upcoming National Cup fixtures, as well as getting involved in a kickabout with them, before finishing with a Q&A session.

Defender, Jordan was delighted to give up his time to come along and support their launch, but felt as if the students had an ulterior motive for joining in. He said: "Coming here and putting smiles on their faces is priceless. I think they were just happy to be out of their lessons!"

Grant added: "It's great to come and see kids enjoying their football. It's what it's all about at their age."
