Santi Cazorla and Cristina Díaz visited a very excited CEIP Botànic Calduch 

Villarreal CF players Santi Cazorla and Cristina Díaz have gone back to school for the day. The footballers visited CEIP Botànic Calduch in Vila-real thanks to the 'A Star In Your School' activity, which is part of the Endavant Club Groguet initiative. The footballers had a great time and shared their best anecdotes about life on and off the pitch.

Students from the school in Vila-real were able to get to know their idols. Cazorla and Díaz took part in an extensive, fun press conference with the youngsters, who got to use the microphone and be journalists for a day. As if that wasn't enough, the pupils got autographs from the players too, with the pair also posing for a group photo. 

The 'A Star In Your School' initiative, part of Endavant Club Groguet, has been running for a number of years. This season, Carlos Bacca and María Sanjuán went to Avel·lí Corma in Moncofa; Manu Trigueros and Naiara Ves visited CEIP José Soriano in Vila-real, Sergio Asenjo and Nazaret Segura went to the Colegio Liceo in Benicàssim, Pau Torres and María Colonques visited CEIP Pascual Nácher in Vila-real; Alberto Moreno and Jessico Collado went to the CPEE La Panderola in Vila-real, Iris Domínguez visited visiting CEIP Josep Iturbi in Burriana, while today it was the turn of Santi Cazorla and Cristina Díaz at CEIP Botànic Calduch in Vila-real.

From here on, footballers from both the men's and women's first teams will go to different schools to get to know the youngsters. As well as the visits from the players, the schools, in the province of Castellón, can enjoy a free training session by Yellows Academy coaches and a guided tour of the Estadio de la Cerámica.
