FOOTBALL fans at a Pershore school have been put through their paces by a former England footballer.

Tony Daley, who previously played for Aston Villa, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Walsall and appeared for England seven times, visited Bowbrook House in Peopleton, near Pershore.

Pupil Guy Griffiths said: "To start off, we did some stretches to warm up and then we went on to some work with the ball.

"He put us into teams and we did a small game, shooting in the same goal.

"Afterwards we went into a big match and put the teams together."

He added: "It was great fun and we are very grateful to Tony for coming in to coach us."
