Young Bedford Town striker, Connor Tomlinson is most often seen on the pitch at The Eyrie adding to the Eagles attacking threat, but this week, he has been visiting a local school to present sporting awards.
Twenty students from Marston Vale Middle School were rewarded for their superb efforts in the sporting arena and for their leadership skills in a special ceremony.
Club secretary, James Smiles was also present and said, ““What a pleasure it was to visit Marston Vale Middle School earlier.”
“The children were so well behaved, and a credit to the hardworking teachers on the site. Being able to reward the children’s leadership awards was a privilege.”
“We look forward to seeing lots of MVMS pupils down at the Eyrie, to see Connor and the lads in action.”
This visit was the first in what is the beginning of the Bedford Town Community Outreach project, led by the club’s commercial manager, Dan Coulthard.
“Getting the [Bedford Town] name out there to local schools and organisations has been a big target for myself and the club this year.”
“Bringing Connor Tomlinson along to reward the pupils was an excellent way to give back to the community, raise the profile of the club and create a buzz around the town.”
“Marston Vale Middle School were so accommodating and their deputy head Miss Burnham & assistant head Mr Mahmood were very grateful for the visit”.
