Tottenham Hotspurs flying full-back had a school day to remember as he surprised pupils at Enfield Grammar School in Middlesex.
The 26-year-old was there in support of the English Schools’ FA (ESFA) PlayStation Schools’ Cup, and a specially arranged Under 12 friendly match between Enfield Grammar and local rivals Chase Community School – both of whom have been big supporters of the PlayStation Schools’ Cup this season. Danny was clearly an inspirational figure as Enfield Grammar got their hands on the special PlayStation Schools’ Cup trophy with an impressive 8-1 win.
Even minus one temperatures didn’t deter Danny Rose supporting the PlayStation Schools’ Cup, 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 schools Dance Studio. Among the answers, Danny proclaimed team mate Kyle Walker to be the player within the Spurs camp who would win a 100m race.
Danny was interviewed by Soccer AM’s own Tubes, which will be airing soon on Sky. Danny also supported a ‘True or False’ interview where it was revealed Danny Rose has more Fantasy Premier League points than a certain Brazilian midfielder this season – keep an eye on the PlayStation Schools’ Cup website and supporting media channels to find out more.
Away from Danny’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 Danny Rose for being such a great inspiration for grassroots football. Our appreciation also extends to Enfield Grammar School for hosting a first class PlayStation Schools’ Cup event.
