Can and Mignolet show their poetic sides

Emre Can and Simon Mignolet recently joined a group of local school children to take part in their Premier League Writing Stars competition preparation.

Launched on National Poetry Day, Premier League Writing Stars is a national poetry competition which aims to encourage primary school pupils to write poetry based on the theme of resilience while having fun and encouraging creativity. 

Can and Mignolet met with pupils at Gwladys Street Community Primary School, where they assisted with creative writing before going head-to-head with pupils in a 'rhyme battle'.

The Writing Stars competition is part of the PL Primary Stars programme, which is delivered by LFC Foundation coaches in schools across Merseyside.

The initiative includes a free online resource for teachers and parents and uses the appeal of the Premier League and professional football clubs to inspire children to learn, be active and develop important life skills.
