Jarvo goes back to school

Matt Jarvis went back to school on Tuesday when the West Ham United winger visited George Abbot School in Guildford.

The pacey wide man was on hand to unveil a new floodlit 3G all-weather training pitch under the gaze of several proud onlookers.

Amongst the assembled gathering were parents Linda Cairns and Julie Dickson who were responsible for the bid to attain a £122,500 grant from Sport England's Inspired Facilities Programme.

The fantastic new pitch also owes much to the fundraising effort from parents, pupils and the Parent Teacher Association.

Like Jarvis, the rest of the Hammers squad would be impressed with the new facilities which will accommodate all of the school's pupils and also a new Sixth Form league.

Use of the pitch will not be restricted to the school however, with the facilities open to the wider community on evenings and weekends and has already hosted Guildford Saints FC.
