Jay's school day

6 October 2012

Tabb promotes football to youngsters

This week, Jay Tabb took time out of his training schedule to inspire pupils from a school in Caversham.

The energetic midfielder, who wants to become a P.E. teacher after his football career, visited Hemdean House School to promote physical education and, in particular, football to the children.

On arrival, Jay watched over as a year 4 class took part in a football session - before introducing himself to the children who congregated for a special assembly.

Jay answered questions from the floor about his time as a footballer and what it takes to play professionally. A ‘yes or no’ style game was then held where a surprised lucky youngster walked away with a signed picture of Jay.

'Tabby' then posed for photos with each class in attendance, and signed items that the children - who were clearly in awe of him throughout the afternoon. 

Our Reading Player cameras were at the scene on the day - click here to watch the video, which includes a chat with Jay himself.
