The session is part of the Foundation’s wider football development programme currently running in schools throughout Essex for boys and girls aged 6-14.
But Year 6 pupils at Theydon Bois were in for a surprise when our French right-back took the time to join in their fun.
A skills session was taken by ‘Football Freestyler’ and Tottenham Hotspur coach Billy Wingrove, while Pascal helped teams of children try their hand at a shooting drill and even took part in a Q&A.
The 28-year-old said: “As a professional it’s great to see football being enjoyed by so many youngsters, and that’s the way it should be.
“The session was very impressive and there is no doubt that levels of ability can be raised this way.
“Not only this, but football helps keep kids healthy, which is important. The Club’s community coaching team are doing a great job.”
Tottenham Hotspur Foundation run a breakfast club, lunchtime club and after school club at Theydon Bois School as part of an extended schools programme, and there are also evening programmes currently running in Chigwell, Harlow, Brentwood, Chelmsford and Benfleet.
