Local kids experience 'inspirational' day

Wolves' dramatic comeback against Bristol City on Saturday thrilled most of the 21,711 inside Molineux - none more so than around 500 schoolchildren located in the lower tier of the Steve Bull Stand.

Several local schools were offered discounted match tickets by the club, and those that took up the opportunity saw their pupils enjoy not only a vital Wolves win, but also the spectacle of their teachers taking part in the half-time entertainment (pictured).

One of the schools that took up the invitation was Perton First, and their headteacher Anne Bennett - who accompanied children and parents to the game - says the day provided a fantastic experience.

"We had a fantastic time cheering on our favourite team," she says. "I couldn't believe that the pupils knew all the words to Hi Ho Silver Lining - pretty impressive for children of such a young age!

"It was inspirational for the children to see two fantastic goals, and we also enjoyed sitting with and talking to children, staff and parents from other schools - we are now friends with Oak Meadow Primary School as a result of attending the game on Saturday." 

Fiona Perry, Wolves Outbound Sales Manager, help to organise the Schools' Day, and afterwards said: "We were delighted to see so many schools take up the opportunity to come along to Molineux and watch a game.

"As a club, we are fully aware of the importance of building strong relationships with the local community, and hopefully we can continue to encourage local children to come along to Molineux and enjoy the matchday experience.

"The children that attended on Saturday certainly seemed to enjoy their day, helped to create a great atmosphere and, thankfully, were able to cheer a crucial Wolves win!"
