Dan Magness – Football Freestyle Event

On the morning of Friday 8th March, pupils at SSSC were treated to a fantastic event, with football freestyler and world-record holder Dan Magness visiting us. Dan is well known in the footballing world having performed in adverts with the likes of Lionel Messi and Rio Ferdinand. Around thirty SSSC pupils got the chance to watch Dan perform an array of incredible tricks and moves before then being taught some moves themselves. Pupils learnt how to catch the ball on their necks, pull off a rocket launch move and learn more about the fine art of keepy uppies!

In the afternoon, Dan performed again for around forty pupils we invited across from Holbrook School, Bennerley Fields and Stanton Vale. Again, pupils and staff were blown away by his incredible skills before taking part in a skills session on our 4G pitch.

Our pupils behaved fantastically well and showed great perseverance in trying to master the various skills being taught. We hope to see Dan again at SSSC soon!
