Artana enjoyed the most emotional edition of the ‘A Star in Your School’ initiative. Villarreal CF captain, Bruno Soriano, relived countless memories from his childhood by going back to his school, CEIP Carme Martín, as a part of the ‘Endavant Club Groguet’ (Yellow Kids Club) project.
The Yellow number 21 shared some beautiful moments and funny stories with the students, who got to enjoy spending time with their idol up close, as well as getting their photos taken with him and his autograph too. A memory they will never forget. And one that the Yellow Submarine captain won’t forget either, as he went back to the school he once attended. With this being the case, the school itself did not want to miss out on the opportunity to appreciate their most illustrious former pupil. Thus, they asked the captain’s very own mother to surprise him by presenting him with a personalized ball with his name, shirt number and the badges of CEIP Carme Martín, Artana CF and Villarreal CF prinited on it. The surprise really touched the Yellows’ centre midfielder, who thanked the school for the gift and in turn gave the school two of his official Villarreal shirts.
The visit, which took place in the school’s sports hall, concluded with an emotional poem recited by the pupils from Carme Martín. After the event, Bruno went to every class to say hello to the youngsters that study and play where the Villarreal captain first learnt to kick a ball.
This is the tenth edition of this season’s ‘A Star in Your School’ initiative.
