Crystal Palace and Wales footballer, Jonny Williams, who is on loan to Ipswich Town, visited Thurston Community College.

A former pupil of a college teacher Gemma Lettington, who taught him in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, Jonny visited to motivate and inspire the school’s footballers. He took part in a question and answer session so students could learn more about him and the day-to-day life of a footballer.

Jonny gave his best piece of advice which was “to be yourself and do what you are good at.” He added: “I really enjoyed coming to see the students, it was great to see the footballers train – very talented for a “B” team.”
