CAPTAIN Clint Hill teamed-up with QPR in the Community Trust to give one lucky group of local budding footballers a day to remember.
The R’s skipper dropped-in at Ruislip Gardens Primary School – venue for one of the Trust’s school holiday soccer schools – to show his support for the club's work in the community.
Hill’s visit proved a huge hit with the youngsters, who revelled in the chance to meet one of their Rangers heroes.
“It was brilliant for the kids to meet one of their idols," Stephen McCarthy, Football Development Manager, told www.qpr.co.uk.
“The fact that it was Clint Hill – the club captain – was an extra bonus.”
Hill watched from the sidelines, offering advice and encouragement to the children as they battled it out for medals on the pitch.
The no-nonsense defender then took centre stage, fielding questions about QPR and his career as a professional footballer.
Hill spoke passionately about his time with the R’s while stressing the dedication and hard work required to be successful in the sport.
He was on hand to award prizes to the players before capping their day by signing autographs and posing for photographs with the kids.
“Clint was great with all of the children, answering questions and giving them advice about the game,” Stephen added.
“Our holiday courses are extremely popular and having players such as Clint Hill come down is our chance to give something back to the communities that we work with.”
The holiday course is one of several soccer schools run by QPR in the Community Trust during the school holidays.
