Home Football News Southampton star inspires local school to win

England and Southampton star Rickie Lambert became the latest Premier League player to show his support for the PlayStation Schools’ Cup, as the road show headed to the south coast to build awareness of grassroots football across the country.

Visiting Hounsdown School in Southampton, Lambert couldn’t resist a quick game of FIFA 14 against some of the school’s pupils on the PlayStation 4 before heading outside to take part in a training session with the school’s U-13 Boys team.

Rickie Lambert has been in great form for both Southampton and England so far this season, and that striking talent clearly rubbed off on the Hounsdown U-13 Boys team as they earned an emphatic 8-1 victory against Ferndown School in the afternoon’s Tie of the Round fixture.

A team of e-reporters from the school got the chance to put their questions to Rickie Lambert in the school library. Keep an eye on our website to read that Q&A soon.

A special thanks goes to Rickie Lambert and Hounsdown School for making our latest ‘Tie of the Round’ a huge success.
