First team player Patrick Jarrett visited the school this week to handover 50 free tickets for Saturday’s match with Greenock Morton with Scotland’s oldest club also providing transport to and from Ochilview.
Patrick’s visit is the first of three meetings with the school as The Spiders look to further strengthen their roots in their local community with Kieran Koszary, Head of Commercial at the club saying: “Patrick handed over the tickets today and had a general chat with the pupils. Next week he will go back in and have a detailed Question and Answer session about the game with Morton and what Queen’s Park is all about.”
“Tickets for Schools is not just about attending the games as we want to give a deeper understanding of the role of a Professional Football Club in its local community and that is why Patrick will pop back in.”
Patrick Jarrett said: “It is always good to be involved in programmes like this. Queen’s Park are a club that are looking to grow their fan base and this is a good way of doing it. I am looking forward to being under the spotlight and asked some difficult questions next week.”
Kieran added: “Before this month is out the club will return and hand over footballs to be used in playground games as part of our ‘Footballs for Schools’ programme. That completes the hat-trick of visits but not the end of the relationship with Our Lady of The Annunciation as we would like their pupils to become long term friends of the club.”
