Day Inspires At School Careers Week
On Monday, former Media Manager and Club Secretary Ryan Day visited St Laurence Primary School in Newington to share his stories from working in football as part of the school’s Careers Week.
Ryan spent time with Year Six pupils who are considering what career path they wish to follow and quizzed Ryan on his time at Hartsdown Park.
The 11-year-olds all then asked Ryan questions after discussing what different roles there were in the football industry.
Assistant Head Teacher Louise Buckland expressed how much the children had enjoyed the visit from Margate FC:
“The children were buzzing to meet Ryan and they were inspired by the stories Ryan had to tell”.
Speaking about the event, Ryan who is still currently involved at HDP and a commentator for Gate:TV, said:
"It was fantastic to meet the children from St Laurence Primary School. They were so enthusiastic about their futures and asked lots of fantastic questions.I think we have a few budding journalists in there!"
At the end of the session, all pupils were invited to attend this Saturday's pre-season friendly against Welling United. This invitation is extended to primary school children in Thanet, who are entitled to a free ticket for themselves and one adult, to celebrate the renewal of the partnership with Thanet Passport.
