PUPILS from Chase View Primary School at Rugeley enjoyed an afternoon of football, thanks to Stafford Rangers.

They attended the club's recent home game against Worksop Town and on arrival at the ground were given a tour behind the scenes including the home and away changing rooms where they met the players preparing for the game.

They went inside the manager's office where they were personally thanked by manager Graham Heathcote for coming, then taken pitch side to see the teams warming up.

The main purpose of the day, however, was to be ball boys and girls for the match and, following a briefing they ran out onto the pitch following an announcement over the PA system and waved to the crowd before taking their pitch-side seats for the game, helping the players and officials to keep the game running smoothly.

Despite cold and wet conditions and a 2-0 defeat for Rangers all of the children had a great afternoon and everyone touched the ball at least once.

At the end of the game the team met and were photographed with Rangers' man of the match Levi Reid.

Everyone is looking forward to returning to Marston Road next season, hopefully on a warmer day and would like to thank Mark White at Stafford Rangers for organising the visit.

Pupils from the school have also visited West Brom and Walsall grounds recently.
