Cecil Martin visits the Spartans

The Spartans would like to thank Sky NFL TV presenter and former NFL player Cecil Martin for his recent visit to Hannakins Farm, which was an incredible success.

Cecil conducted an hour-long coaching session for children between the ages of 10-18, followed by an hour of questions and answers, a short speech, and some time for autographs and photographs. With the April showers holding off just long enough, the training session was well attended with various members of the Spartans coaching staff and senior team able to assist Cecil and learn from the great man himself.

The motivational skills of Cecil were evident in his address to those attending the event, and some interesting questions provoked some truly insprirational responses.

For more, read our special report written by the Spartans own Conor Porter here. Additionally, the Spartans were delighted to be joined by Emma Webb, a freelance sports journalist who has had her article and interview with Cecil published on the website - the article can be found here, with the interview here. Great work by both Conor and Emma!

Thanks again Cecil!
