Frome Town boss Darren Perrin visits Bishop Henderson Primary School in Coleford
Frome Town manager Darren Perrin paid a visit to Bishop Henderson Primary School in Coleford last week as part of the club's growing educational programme.
Nicola Coles, who was recently appointed as educational liaison officer at the club, was delighted with the response from pupils and parents.
"Darren was excellent with the children and we can't thank him enough for giving up his time to come in and speak to them," she said.
"They didn't want him to leave so he has had to promise to come back again!

"Visits to schools are just a part of what can be achieved by using football as an educational tool and it's really amazing the reaction we have had from not just the children but the parents as well."
Perrin was also pleased to see football making an impact at school.
"It was great to see children so passionate about education and learning, and also what a connection the class and the school are getting with Frome Town," he said.
"Some of the displays and work they have done is fantastic – it was a pleasure to be able to go in and help out."
Coles is planning further school visits with other members of the club.
