French Q&A For Town Players

27 April 2016

Leutwiler And Akpa Akpro Visit Local School

"We would like to thank the school for allowing us to visit with Jayson and Jean-Louis, and for the tea and bread.

"It is important for the club to continue to grow its links with local schools and we were impressed by how good the children's French was."
Shrewsbury Town in the Community's education and inclusion officer, Jade Hibbert, said:
"It was very good and very kind of them to provide us with tea and food.

"It was good to speak French with the children as I only usually speak French with Jean-Louis.

"The children's Fench was very good."

Anne Rossall, who teaches French at the school, said: "We would like to thank Jayson and Jean-Louis for coming to visit us on their day off and speaking French with the children.

"They're both really lovely guys and we wish them all the best for the Peterborough match on Saturday."
Shrewsbury Town goalkeeper Leutwiler said:

Leutwiler and Akpa Akpro, who featured in the 2-1 defeat at Walsall the night before, came in on their day off to answer the questions in French - a language the pair speak.

Class 7B at the school, who study French, asked questions to the players in French - ranging from the team they support to how old they were when they started playing.

Pupils at Sundorne School and Sports College had a question and answer session in French with Shrewsbury Town players Jayson Leutwiler and Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro on Wednesday afternoon.
