Sam Merson and Sammy the Saint visit Colney Heath School

As part of the ongoing work to promote healthy and active lifestyles in the district, St Albans City co-owner, Lawrence Levy, first-team player Sam Merson and Club mascot Sammy the Saint went to Colney Heath Junior Mixed Infant school on Monday to deliver an assembly to encourage local children to eat healthily, be more active and work together.

This is one part of St Albans City and its partner, City Youth’s continuing programme to support the local community and as part of this is currently delivering multi-sports coaching to 20 schools in the district.

Speaking to the Herts Ad Saints striker Sam, whose father made 327 appearances for Arsenal, said how important it is for the club to do its best to encourage children to not be afraid to have a go at any sport and not to worry about making mistakes and getting things wrong. “I explained that the only way to learn and get better is to make mistakes” added Sam.

Colney Heath’s headmaster, Peter Rose, added “St Albans City FC came into school to talk to the whole school about participating in sport, the need for exercise and a balanced diet. It is great to have professional footballer talking to the children and sharing their experiences. The children especially enjoyed having Sammy the Lion in school”.

This Saturday sees the return of the clubs primary schools half-time penalty prize competition where Colney Heath JMI will play St Bernadette Catholic Primary. The first team opponents are Oxford City and will see many of the clubs 160 ‘Young Saints’ come down to support the team.

Should any schools wish to have an assembly or extra sports coaching, club Community Manager Phill Coates would be happy to hear from you at phill.coates@stalbanscityfc.com.

This programme is part of the City Youth  / St Albans City working in the community funded by the National League Trust
