GB Women Make Special Visit to School

PUPILS at Christ Church C of E Primary School got a special introduction to handball last week, with several members of the Great Britain Women’s team paying them a visit.

Five players went along to the school on the Wirral with Team Manager Melanie Chowns, who gave the children an introductory talk about the game, before they got a chance to try out their skills.

GB Players teamed up with some of the children in a penalty shootout competition, with GB goalkeeper Laura Innes in goal.

The team were in the region preparing for the Four Nations Tournament at the Echo Arena, and pupils from Christ Church Primary were just some of hundreds of pupils across the North West who took advantage of the free ticket offers available to schools.

Teacher Claire Cooper said afterwards: “Thank you for a fabulous day. The children really enjoyed the match too! It was great for some of your players to come and sit with the kids, it made it really special.”
