A surprise visitor!

Sir Bobby

Guess who came to visit today?

Our lovely President, Sir Bobby Charlton, popped in for a surprise visit this morning and put smiles on everyone's faces! The young people and staff from Oakwood High School in Manchester were absolutely over the moon when Sir Bobby made a surprise appearance during their Christmas party - you'd have thought Santa himself had walked in!

Sir Bobby spent quite some time with the group, signing autographs for every child and posing for photographs. Many hands were shaken and there were hugs all round, it was difficult to know who enjoyed it more - the children or Sir Bobby! He chatted to the children about football, asked them what they wanted for Christmas and if they were enjoying their day. The children were so excited - and the adults were pretty pleased too!

With a "Merry Christmas" he left after gaining many new friends. The children say his visit has made their Christmas, it made a magical day even more memorable.
