Rowanfield School have been testing their shooting skills with the Hot Shot challenge.
Rowanfield School's pupil were proving how good they were with a football last week as they took on the Hot Shot challenge.
Each week the Robins, with the help of Whaddney and groups of players, will be taking the club’s inflatable penalty shoot out machine to junior schools in the Gloucestershire area to challenge local youngsters.
Members of our community team arrives at Rowanfield School with the Hot Shot inflatable last Thursday and gave the pupils the chance to record their strongest shot. Cheltenham Town players Jason Taylor and David Noble were on hand to give it a go and give the pupils some advice when striking the ball.
Our top challengers of the day were Keane Mazowiec who recorded a massive 48mph and Holly Finch who hit an impressive 38mph. A big well done to all out the pupils having a go and thank you to Rowanfield School who made us very welcome!
The inflatable’s special radar system registers how fast a shot is and the challenge is to find not only the hottest young shot but also the fastest school. The pupils had three shots each and these were recorded to see how well Rowanfield School does against many other schools from around Gloucestershire. Each week the Gloucestershire Echo will capture the challenge in words and pictures for the paper and at the end of the season the individual winner will receive a complete Robins kit while the top school will be given a VIP match day experience at the Abbey Business Stadium.
The Robins Echo Hot Shot Challenge kicked off in November but has now unfortunately sold out! Opportunities will be available in future so please keep an eye on www.ctfc.com.
