Blues defender gets involved in football session with youngsters

Luke Woolfenden visited Gainsborough Sports Centre this afternoon to take part in a multi-sports camp put on by ITFC and Ipswich Fit.

The camps, which take place at Gainsborough, Whitton Sports Centre and Ransomes Sports Pavillion, are completely free and are open to children between the ages of seven and 14.

All 13 camps taking place over the summer holidays include a free lunch and a four-hour structured sports and activities session.

Today's session at Gainsborough was the fourth held, and children took part in sports and games including dodgeball, basketball and football.

Town centre-half Luke took part in the football, while also posing for photos and signing items for the youngsters.

"I remember coming to days like this when I was a kid and I really enjoyed them. It looks like the children today have had fun and that's what it's all about," the 20-year-old told the Club website.

"It's important to get them out of the house and active as well. They get a free lunch on these camps so that's great.

"Ipswich staff have been here today too and it's another thing that helps gets the Club out in the community. That's good because you want everyone to feel like they're attached to the Club in one way or another.

"Personally I've enjoyed it. I can see it makes their day when a footballer turns up and has a bit of banter with them and gets involved."
