The Cheltenham Town under-18s squad joined staff from CPRforLife on Tuesday for an important training session on how to deliver CPR.

The youngsters spent the afternoon training on how to perform the emergency procedure, which is a life saving medical practice given to someone who is in cardiac arrest.

Maria Smith, who led the training said: "We want to train as many people as we can, especially children and older children, in life saving skills.

"CPR has been proven to save lives and we want to get as many people trained as possible.

"We want people to have the confidence to get on and do chest compressions."

The training is a part of the wider life skills the scholars are taught while part of the under-18s set-up at the club which also includes a variety of guest speakers on top of their college studies while they push to earn a professional contract.
