Collectables specialists Topps has helped a group of young football hopefuls realise their dream of training with Chelsea’s star winger, Eden Hazard.

Pupils from St Mary’s School in Barnet jumped at the once in a lifetime chance to learn football skills from the Premier League star through a competition organised by the trading cards and stickers firm.

Winners of the Topps Club Together campaign, St Mary’s Under 11s Football Team were treated to a training session with Hazard at Surrey Sports Park. The team was also awarded Topps football kits and shirts.

To win the exclusive prize, St Mary’s School topped the leader board by collecting Match Attax and Match Attax Extra football trading cards and registered over 24,500 codes printed inside the packets, online.

Topps’ Rod Pearson, said: “At Topps, we are dedicated to giving budding football players and collectors the chance to benefit from our support and our strong partnerships with international footballers, to learn from their experiences and apply them on the pitch.

“Our Club Together competition has been a great success yet again this year, seeing over 1,000 teams getting involved in order to win this once in a lifetime opportunity to play side buy side with Eden.”

Richard Wells, assistant coach at St Mary’s School in Barnet, added: “Every young football fan at one point in their life dreams of becoming a professional footballer.

“It was heart-warming today to see the kids hanging on Eden Hazard’s every word. Days like today are great morale boosters to show these avid football card collectors that anything is possible.”
