Chester FC Community Trust teamed up with Sanctuary Housing to give 20 children from Lache a football experience to remember.
Arriving at the Lookers Vauxhall Stadium in the morning on a coach, the group watched the first-team train from the VIP seats in the East Stand and created a great atmosphere, cheering the squad as they were put through their paces by manager Steve Burr and coach Jon McCarthy.
The children then had a behind the scenes tour of the ground and had the chance to visit the changing rooms and walk on the pitch before having lunch and collecting autographs from the players and being given a match programme.
Following lunch, the group headed over to Goals Soccer Centre for a training session with community coaches Richard Smith and Steph Oscroft, picking up tips, perfecting skills and playing games before heading home.
Steph Oscroft said: " It's great to work with children from the local area and even better when we can get them down to the ground when the first-team are training here as it creates a day to remember for them.
"Not only did the children got to see our players in training but they also got to have a go at football themselves with their friends.
"Our main aim is to engage with the local community through the the power of sport and today is another example of how we do this.
"We hope to see the children back down at the Lookers Vauxhall Stadium to watch a league game soon."
Cheshire West and Chester Council apprentices, Sanctuary Housing and PCSOs Jenna Smith and Racheal McKevitt supported the children during the day.
Libbie Stock from Sanctuary Housing said: "The young people had a fantastic day which is great as it has helped them look forward to living healthier and seeing the potential of reaching their goals through football."
