Men’s First Team defender or midfielder Louis Longridge, who is closing in on one hundred games for the Spiders, visited the school this week to present tickets for the game against ‘The Honest Men’ as well as answer questions from the pupils on life as a professional footballer.
Louis also handed over t-shirts and scarves and agreed to return to Eaglesham Primary in the near future to talk about the game and answer any more questions that the schoolchildren have.
Transport to and from the game is being provided by the club with Louis saying: “I noticed that there was a big group of schoolchildren from St Fillan’s at our game with Dunfermline last Saturday thanks to the ‘Tickets for Schools’ Programme and I am looking forward to seeing the children from Eaglesham on Friday.
“Visiting the school is a great way to promote Queen’s Park and taking part in a Question-and-Answer session is always good as you never know what is going to come up. I am sure that will be the same when I go back.”
Kieran Koszary, Head of Commercial at the club, said: “We received tremendous feedback from St Fillan’s after their visit to the Dunfermline game and that was a great way to restart our ‘Tickets for Schools’ Programme.
“Hopefully Eaglesham Primary School will enjoy their visit just as much especially as they have the added excitement of travelling here by a bus from their school.”
