Bolton Wanderers striker Sanmi Odelusi teaches kids football skills
WANDERERS striker Sanmi Odelusi gave youngsters a treat when he took part in weekly disability football sessions organised by the Bolton Wanderers Community Trust (BWCT).
The 20-year-old, who scored twice on his full debut for the Whites in the Capital One Cup win at Shrewsbury in August, was on hand at the Smithills Leisure Centre to offer some tips to teenagers.
And the front man was delighted to get involved.
Odelusi said: “It was a great experience for me. It is my first time doing something like that.
“I enjoyed it and, hopefully, I can do a couple more like that for the kids.”
The session is one of two run weekly by the BWCT — one for under-16s at Smithills and one for open age, which takes place at Bolton Arena during the winter months. Coach Paul Roberts was thrilled to see the reaction of the youngsters to Odelusi’s appearance.
He said: “It was brilliant to get a first team player down to the sessions.
“The kids felt special and it is an inspiration to them.
“It is all about enjoyment and it is great for them to see players getting involved.”
The sessions take place on Wednesdays (under-16s) and Fridays (open age) between 5pm and 6pm and new players are always welcome.
