Charlie Cresswell recently paid a special visit to local youngsters taking part in some half-term disability football camps with the Leeds United Foundation.

The Leeds United defender was on hand at Springwell Leeds Academy East following training to take part in one of their inclusive football sessions with coaches from the club’s official charity, including Leeds United Women’s player Cath Hamill who was helping to deliver the session.

The youngsters in attendance, who all have additional needs, had been practicing their skills throughout the day with the Academy product joining later in the afternoon to get involved in a mini game.

During the visit, the England Under-21 international also handed out a chocolate Easter egg to each child in attendance to help wish them a Happy Easter on behalf of the club and Foundation.

Speaking to LUTV during the visit, Cresswell said: “It’s brilliant to come and see all of the smiles on the children’s faces, especially coming to a place like this with kids that are less fortunate than others but still being able to put a smile on their faces and helping to make their day.”

The fun and enjoyable sessions take place through each half-term holiday and are open to any young children with either learning or physical disabilities, the sessions are appropriate for all abilities and there is often the chance to book a set of courses or one day at a time.

Please keep an eye out for any future disability camps as there are limited spaces available at each camp to ensure that each child attending is able to gain the best experience.
