Lewis Montrose Spends A Morning With The Community Team!

Stockport County Community Foundation were delighted when our very own County midfielder and Community Foundation Coach Lewis Montrose joined the team for the morning. Alongside being a key member of the first team here at Stockport County, Lewis is also one of the coaches who delivers sport based sessions within the Primary Schools Coaching Programme each week which this year is sponsored by our great supporters Midshire.

Lewis looked at some of the activities the team were delivering throughout the local community. Firstly he attended one of our summer soccer courses being run at Moorfield Primary School, Hazel Grove. The holiday course has been running for the first two weeks of the summer holidays and had attracted an excellent turnout. The children whose ages ranged from 5 to 14 were delighted to see Lewis and got the opportunity to hold a question and answer session with him. After answering many questions Lewis offered advice and tips to the footballers of the future. Afterwards, back outside, the players showcased their new skills in the end of week competitions and tournaments. There was plenty of time for pictures and autographs before Lewis left for his next event.

Next stop the very popular walking football sessions. These are held every Friday from 1100 - 1200 at Powerleague  Stockport. These sessions are for adults aged 50 and over. New players are always welcome! This event is run in partnership with Stockport Homes, Step Out Stockport and Powerleague. We aim to get adults back into regular exercise in a relaxed and enjoyable environment. Once Lewis arrived he was introduced to the group and took time to answer any questions. A number of the players are Stockport County fans so it was an especially fantastic opportunity for them to meet Lewis.  

Colin who attends the session each week and is a committed member of the SCFC Walking Football Team commented " To have the opportunity to meet and speak to Lewis about his journey in football and then give up his time to watch us in action, was great and a morning I won't forget for a long time. I even managed to give him some of my experiences and tips for him to use" Once the session had finished Lewis joined the group for some refreshments which are provided each week. Finally before leaving he signed a few autographs before passing on his best wishes to the SCFC Walking Football Team. The team is hoping to play a short match at half time before the end of the current season. 

Stockport County Community Foundation remains extremely committed to offering a complete range of sporting activities for children and adults right across the borough regardless of age or ability. This was highlighted by the range of activities witnessed by Lewis. He watched children from 5 years old and upwards to the walking footballers, one of the regulars who is 91 years young, taking part in physical activity.  

Assistant Community Foundation Manager Matthew Bailey said "We were delighted Lewis gave up his own time to come along and see some of the activities we are offering children and adults in the borough on a weekly basis. Itís great to give them access to our football club and make sure we continue to attract the next generation of fans young and old to Edgeley Park to see their local football club"

We would like to thank Lewis for his time.  I know he made a lot of children and adults very happy during his visit.
