'Kano' and Mark Hurst visit Oakbank

Saints pair Chris Kane and Mark Hurst, along with the club's School Engagement Manager, Megan Moss, spoke to pupils at Oakbank Primary School in Perth on Monday afternoon.

The trio gave the kids a presentation on the importance of being active and playing sports, before the two players talked about being professional footballers and what it took to get to where they are now.

Chris Kane, who has now played 76 matches for St. Johnstone and scored 10 goals, said: "I really enjoyed Monday's visit to Oakbank. Being a footballer it's important and part of our job as role models to speak to children at a young age about the importance of being active and playing sports.

"We were also able to talk about eating the right foods and staying away from the crisps and sweets. Hopefully, we'll see a few of the kids at one of our home games this season."

Megan followed up Monday's visit by running football sessions with pupils at Craigie Primary School all day on Wednesday (Megan is pictured below with the Primary 3 class). If you'd like to arrange a school visit from St. Johnstone please email meganmoss@perthsaints.co.uk
