Community: Grimes & Downes support Primary Stars

26 January 2018

Club captain Aaron Downes and defender Jamie Grimes this week visited Greatfield Park Primary School to support the Primary Stars project.

The Robins duo were special guests at the school as they helped Cheltenham Town Community Trust deliver talks to students on career pathways and resilience.

The Primary Stars project uses the appeal of the Premier League and professional football clubs to inspire children to learn, be active and develop important life skills.

Available to every primary school in England and Wales, it inspires girls and boys aged 5-11 in the classroom, the playground and on the sports field. The project is aimed at Primary Schools in both England and Wales and works with over 90 professional football clubs.

Aaron Downes said: “It was great to go into the school with Grimesy to chat to students about the pressures and the determination it takes to be a professional athlete.

“Grimesy is very comfortably in that environment and spoke very well so hopefully the students took on some of the messages he put across. Hopefully we inspired them to be the future of Cheltenham Town Football Club.”
