Midfielder makes school visit with CSF

GRAHAM Dorrans went back to school on Tuesday afternoon, dropping in at Great Witchingham Primary Academy to help support the work done by the Community Sports Foundation.

Each week, CSF delivers PE lessons to 65 schools to enhance, sustain and develop PE and School Sport, with over 10,000 pupils aged 5-11 years-old participating in those sessions.

They also provide over 100 extra-curricular clubs a week to give pupils the opportunity of additional sporting activities after school finishes.

Speaking to Norwich City TV while at the school, Dorrans said: "It’s been good to come along and talk to the kids. 

"I’ve been going around the classrooms speaking to them and watching them do some training outside. You see how excited they are when someone comes in from their local club so it’s really nice.

"This is part of what we do as footballers, coming out to speak to the kids. It’s great to be helping them in these sessions and you can see how much enjoyment they get from it.

"Norwich is their local club so someone coming along from there is great for them."

With the Canaries currently on a temporary break from league action due to the October internationals, Dorrans says Saturday’s victory at Wolves was crucial to maintaining momentum.

"It was a massive win for us at the weekend, especially after the way the game went in midweek," the 29-year-old added.

"Nobody said it before the game, but it was probably a must-win after Newcastle. Thankfully we managed to do that so overall it’s been a good month for us with a lot of wins.

"When I came back from injury I said how disappointed I was to have been out because I'd been feeling good. The fitness boys have got me in good shape now though and I’m enjoying my football.

"Hopefully I can keep that up. The games are coming thick and fast and hopefully we can keep adding three points on the board."
