Football legend visits schoolPupils and staff at Lakeside School recently welcomed a sporting legend on a visit to the school.

Former Everton and Scotland striker, Duncan Ferguson, better known as ‘Big Dunc’, was delighted to visit the school and see first-hand the impressive learning environment and educational resources available to Lakeside’s pupils.

The visit caused much excitement as both staff and pupils got to meet and talk with a real sporting icon. The pupils got to ask questions about his life as professional footballer and his current role as part of the coaching staff at Everton Football Club. They also enjoyed having their photograph taken with him, surprisingly even some of the Liverpool supporters!

Unfortunately, the weather meant that the organised football game had to be cancelled, but Duncan showed what being a sporting legend is all about by promising to return to the school to take part in the football session.

As you can see from the photographs, he certainly brought a smile to everyone’s face. Thanks ‘Big Dunc.’
