Goalkeeper Rory Watson visited the Futsal second-year scholars to provide inspiration, on a nationwide #EFLDayofAction.
Following the scholar’s classroom session in the morning, he took time in the afternoon to visit Bottesford Sports Hall, where they train, to learn more about Futsal and to get involved.
The students, who have nearly completed their NCFE Level Three Extended Diploma in Sport & Physical Activity (Sports Coaching) with Futsal (worth up to three A-Levels), have recently got through to the finals of the EFL Trust Trophy.
The group also represent the club in the EFL Trust Futsal League, along with other cup competitions throughout the course of the season at various locations around the UK.
The United pair were both available to answer any questions thrown their way during the visit, while they learned about the course themselves from Futsal Scholarship Teacher Wayne Johnson.
Following the visit, Futsal Scholarship Manager Gav Cooper said: “As always, we are very grateful for members of the Scunthorpe United team to take time to visit our first and second year scholars. On this occasions, we are thankful for Rory’s time with our second years as he visited them during one of their training sessions.
“We’ve had a great amount of success on the course in recent years and it’s gone from strength-to-strength in terms of interest. We’re already looking to recruit new scholars for the 2019-20 season and this course provides a fantastic alternative to attending college and still provides a distinctive pathway towards university, which can also be provided by the SUFC Trust.”
