COMMUNITY: PDC Crossbar Challenge

The winners will take to the pitch against Crawley Town this weekend...

23 November 2017

Over the last few weeks children from our Player Development Centres (PDC) have been helping to raise money for Sky Blues in the Community through taking on the crossbar challenge and raising money through sponsorship.

At PDC Training, all players have had 10 attempts at hitting the crossbar - with the winners from each Age Group being invited to the match today. 

Not only this, but all those taking part also had the opportunity to receive a number of rewards including signed CCFC footballs, signed CCFC shirts, a chance to meet the CCFC players and mascot experiences.

This weekend, we welcome: Lennon Orton (U7), Samuel Perkins (U8), Alfie Tipple (U9), Callum Greenfield (U10), George Ramsay (U10), Thomas Healy (U11), Callum Niland (U11), Luke Curtlin (U12), Billy Burden (U13), James Kiley (U14), Lewis Coward (U15), Luke Sherwood (U15) and Karim Traore (U16). 

These 13 players all won the Crossbar Challenge for their Age Group and will be taking on one final challenge at the Ricoh on Saturday.

Please make them all feel welcome as they attempt to hit the crossbar at Half-Time!

Football Development Manager, Shaun Pierce, said: “It has been great fun running our crossbar challenge event over the last few weeks. 

The children have all loved taking part and it is an unbelievable opportunity for the winners to step onto the pitch at the Ricoh Arena at Half-Time at the Coventry City vs. Crawley Town fixture to showcase their skills. 

The money raised will help benefit the local community and I can’t thank everyone enough for all their support for our charity.”
