Pupils from St Mary’s Catholic Primary School recently enjoyed a penalty shoot-out with Dunstable Town Football Club.
The players offered help and advice to the pupils, as well as saving hundreds of penalties - and letting in a few.
The sponsored penalty shoot-out also raised money for the school and football club, who provided footballs, medals and match tickets as prizes.
Steve Chiswell, headteacher, said: “Today was a wonderful whole school event, the children, parents and staff thoroughly enjoyed it!
“It is important for our children to have a sense of the wider community in which they live, today’s event absolutely achieved that aim. I hope this is the start of a strong relationship with DTFC!”
Dunstable Town FC hope many of the children attend the games this season to support the team and pick up some new tips.
