Darlington stars Omar Holness and Osagi Bascome have been out visiting local schools to support the efforts of the National League North club’s community arm and promote healthy living and lifetstyles.
The Quakers duo are pictured at St Joseph’s Primary School in Billingham after talking to youngsters about their lives as footballers, commitment to health and fitness and determination to succeed when the going gets tough.
Organised by Darlington FC Football in the Community, the Year 5 and Year 6 pupils also enjoyed a football skills session before Jamaican defender Holness and Bermudian forward Bascome took part in a Q&A session and told them more about their experiences playing all over the world.
The Quakers hailed the success of the latest school visit by their foundation in a club statement on Monday.
According to delighted officials, the final question from one of the youngsters to the players was:”‘When are you coming back?”
