Clarets star George Boyd scored a big hit with youngsters when he visited Magical Tree Nursery in Healey Wood Road, Burnley.

The popular footballer popped in after training and met all the children and had a kickabout with the youngsters, took part in a penalty shootout and played some throwing and catching activities with the keen young Clarets fan.

Mums, dads and friends popped along too to meet the player who was very friendly and chatty. The nursery has a partnership with the football club through its BOA –By Official Appointment – programme . Manager Laura Southwell said it had been a great day.
