Dejan Lovren paid a visit to St Teresa of Lisieux Catholic Primary School in Norris Green this week.
The Reds centre-back took part in an Open Goals taster session run by the LFC Foundation, the club’s official charity.
Pupils from Year 5 enjoyed an Open Goals multi-sports session alongside Lovren, who really brought out their competitive spirits.
Open Goals is the LFC Foundation's free weekly multi-sports and activity sessions delivered in 15 local parks across Merseyside for children (aged 5+) and families.
The free sessions, which do not require pre-registration and typically last upto two hours, are designed to support families to be more active together and are inclusive to all abilities.
Some of the LFC Foundation coach-led activities at Open Goals include quick cricket, ultimate frisbee, orienteering games, hot potato, cat and mouse, bean bag throw, frisbee golf and much more. In the event of bad weather, each location has indoor facilities that can be used.
Open Goals taster sessions are being delivered by LFC Foundation coaches and volunteers in schools across Merseyside to encourage awareness of the project and participation.
Miss Leslie, teacher at St Teresa of Lisieux Catholic Primary School, said: “We have received amazing support from the LFC Foundation. Their coaches and volunteers are fantastic with our pupils and really add to our physical education offer. Following on from these taster sessions, lots of our children go onto participate in Open Goals in their local parks.”
