City defender surprises local pupils

Norwich City’s Timm Klose went back to school this week to surprise pupils at Bignold Primary School in Norwich.

The centre-back spent the afternoon answering questions about his football career and giving advice to help and inspire the children.

Timm attended a meeting with a group of Year Five pupils on the school sports council, a committee that allows the youngsters to make decisions alongside the teachers to maintain a positive attitude towards school sport.

The Swiss international then stopped by a ‘Super Movers’ session, a new exciting campaign started by the Premier League and the BBC earlier this year to inspire primary school children to get active.

Clare Jones Headteacher of Bignold Primary School And Nursery said:

“It was a true pleasure to welcome Timm to Bignold. He interacted beautifully with the children and adults and nothing phased him. He is a true ambassador for Norwich City Football Club and is welcome to return whenever he wants!”

Each week, CSF delivers PE lessons to 65 schools in the region, with over 10,000 pupils aged 5-11 years-old participating in those sessions.

The Foundation also provides over 100 extra-curricular clubs a week to give pupils the opportunity of additional sporting activities after school finishes.
