And along with watching the players honing their skills on the pitch they got the chance to meet and interview Mr Dyche.

Teacher Mrs Cate Floyd said: “It was something of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be invited to the training ground just to watch what was going on to start with so when the children got the chance to interview Sean Dyche they were thrilled as they had lots of questions to ask him about the team.

“They also loved watching the team play and meeting them afterwards.

“They made us really welcome and they signed shirts and also posed for lots of photographs. It was an unforgettable day for us all.”
