School Visit | Mal Benning

17 November 2023

Mal Benning visited Trinity Primary School on Thursday to speak to children who have been studying  Sikhism.

A few weeks ago we joined forces with the EFL to create a feature on Mal who is one of only a handful of Indian Sikh players in the professional game. 

That video was spotted by staff at the school who then invited Mal in to discuss his religion.

The defender has always said he hopes his story will inspire more youngsters in both the Sikh and Asian communities to believe they too can become professional footballers.

And Mal certainly made a big impact on the youngsters at Trinty Primary School.

The 30-year-old discussed the Five Ks, his trips to the gurdwara and how he combines his faith with being a footballer.

His visit was a huge success with the school commentating afterwards how inspired all the children were!
