YOUNG football fans got the chance to meet Manchester United star Jessie Lingard at a summer football camp.

England and Manchester United legend Wes Brown ran a well-attended camp at Wilmslow Prep School’s sports facilities over the holidays.

More than 30 children attended each session, benefitting from top class coaching alongside an Old Trafford great.

United star Jesse Lingard visited the Prep, where he held a Q&A session and took photos with those attending the camp.

Kyle, seven, was so pleased to get to meet and chat with Jessie.

Kyle’s mum said: “Kyle has loved every aspect of the Wes Brown Football Camp at WPS, from learning new ball control skills and drills to playing team games and matches.

“Meeting Jesse Lingard was a fabulous experience and has boosted his love of football.”

Helen Rigby, headteacher at Wilmslow Prep, was delighted to see the sports facilities enjoyed throughout the holiday.

She said: “The artificial turf facility at Wilmslow Prep School’s sports hall is ideal as it provides a large, outdoor multi-use sports pitch for our pupils and for attendees of external sports clubs, camps and classes.

“As always, it is preferable to play football and other sports outdoors, but with the rainy weather we’ve had this summer, Wes and his coaching team have been able to use both the indoor sports hall as well as the artificial pitch.”
