César Azpilicueta inspires Glenthorne High School with surprise visit
Chelsea’s ever dependable defender César Azpilicueta took time out to go back to school as he visited pupils at Glenthorne High School in support of the English Schools’ FA (ESFA) PlayStation Schools’ Cup.
It has been a sensational season for César, who continued his fine form by taking part in a number of activities with the school’s pupils. This included playing FIFA 17, picture and signing sessions and supporting a Q&A in the school’s Dance Studio. Among the answers, César revealed that it was at a fans forum that he gained the nickname ‘Dave’ at Chelsea.
César met both teams after a Year 8 football fixture between Glenthorne High School and their local opposition Stanley Park High School as well as taking on grassroots show Sky Sports Game Changers’ challenge – Trick, Question, Tip.
Away from César’s exciting appearance, well-performing pupils were rewarded with a PlayStation Matchday Hub being set up in their Sports Hall – with 16 PlayStation 4 consoles showcasing the latest titles. The ESFA also gave PE lessons a brand new look with two football coaches putting on some fun sessions for pupils all the way from Year 7 to Year 11.
We would like to say a big thank you to Cesar Azpilicueta for being such a great inspiration for grassroots football. Our appreciation also extends to Glenthorne High School for hosting a first class PlayStation Schools’ Cup event.
