Some cherries memories for Ringwood school students…

The room was bursting with smiles and laughter throughout, a heartwarming way to start the first TOTR of the year.

Student Q&A

It’s not every day you get a Premier League footballer visiting your school…the Bournemouth AFC player surprised pupils at Ringwood High School yesterday. The stage was set in the hall and the pupils rushed in with excitement. As soon as Wilson was announced he was met with a deafening welcome. Students were given the unbelievable opportunity to ask questions to a Premier League player. When each student answered their question Callum was able to provide some of his wisdom to all the aspiring footballers.

Some of the questions included :

Who has the best goal celebration?

Who’s your best friend at the club?

Who would win a 100 metre race?

 

FIFA Time…

The famous FIFA tournament was next on the agenda. One specially selected student was given one of the most desired opportunities of any FIFA player, to play a FIFA match against an actual real-life footballer.

The match had everyone’s eyes glued to the screen as you could see both players frantically moving in order to secure a win.

In the end however the score became 2-1 to the student, however Callum took his defeat well and with a smile on his face. The student beamed with joy proud of his achievement as his classmates congratulated him.

Q&A

As Aaron Cresswell walked into the school hall, Drapers’ students were astonished that they were in the presence of the West ham player and that their school was chosen to be visited by him.

A few pupils were given the chance of asking a Premier League footballer some questions during the Q&A session…

‘What are your memories of school football?’

‘What does it take to become a footballer?’

‘Who’s the joker in the West ham Changing room?’

Watch the full interview below:

Meet & Greet

The team captains of Drapers’ Academy and Redden Court school were given the honour of introducing each player in their team to Aaron Cresswell. The West ham player greeted each player and gave them a handshake which was evidently a big moment for each individual.

 

 

A man of many talents…

After the meet and greet Aaron Cresswell was excited to see a piano in the hallway and immediately took to it. He played John Legends’s ‘All of me’.

Ready, set, FIFA

The FIFA match was turbulent, to say the least. It was by far one of the most entertaining of the season so far.

Cresswell chose Barcelona to play as and the student chose Juventus. Every second of the match was extremely gripping every couple of minutes there were goals about to be attempted.

In the last few minutes of the match saw a lot of twists! Cresswell was falling behind with a score of 0-2. However, when it was close to the end of the game Cresswell scored 2 goals to even the result.

Though the crowd was expecting the match to finish on a draw, there was a surprising turn of events in the last few moments. Just before the match ended the student managed unexpectedly to score one last goal. The reaction from the crowd was one of disbelief as his classmates cheered in pride over his victory. The end score was 2-3. Cresswell took the defeat well and congratulated the student and even praised his FIFA skills.
