Casey Stoney, who captained Team GB’s women’s football team at London 2012, and world champion bobsleigher Nicola Minichiello recently visited Balby Carr College to meet pupils.

England skipper and Lincoln Ladies defender Stoney talked to students about her story and what things were like when she was developing into a young adult within football.

“Personally I was blown away with Casey’s story and it inspired me to keep on developing and enhancing pupils’ learning to help them achieve their full potential,” said Balby Carr PE teacher Shane McClune.

The talks were part of the Sky Sports Living for Sport project.
