Joe Hart’s first player appearance for Burnley FC in the Community saw him visit Year 4 and 6 pupils at St Mary’s Church of England Primary School in Rawtenstall!
St Mary’s are one of over 30 local schools who are involved in BFCitC’s Premier League (PL) Primary Stars programme, and the children enjoyed a Q&A with Joe as a fun part of their sporting and educational development through PL Primary Stars.
Joe answered multiple questions about his career and his love for football, including his current time as a Burnley FC goalkeeper, before posing for photos and signing autographs for more teachers, pupils and parents at the school’s Christmas Fair.
