A RUGBY legend was the special guest at Shuttleworth College in Padiham.

Former Great Britain rugby league star Paul Broadbent visited the school to represent Sky Sports Living for Sport Scheme, which aims to inspire and motivate students to apply the life lessons they have learned through sport to all aspects of their lives.

Paul spent all day with the young people, and presented an assembly to Year 10 before going on to do classroom-based presentations with two other groups. He also led two games sessions in the sports hall.

He is one of 13 sports stars to join the existing mentor team, which is headed by Olympic sprinter Darren Campbell.

As a part of the scheme pupils are involved in a project which benefits them and the community.

Assistant headteacher Mr Alan Riley has co-ordinated the project at Shuttleworth where a group of Year 7 pupils are being coached by ex-Accrington Stanley footballer Chris Turner alongside PE teacher Mr Daniel Campbell.

The youngsters will then visit primary schools and pass on what they have learned by coaching Year 5 children.
