Josh Hodgson a guest of honour for the Electric Eels
Josh Hodgson was a special guest of the East Riding Electric Eels recently as he paid a visit to one of their training sessions at St Mary’s College in the city.
The Eels are the first Powerchair Football team in the east riding area and have had their playing kits sponsored by Neil Hudgell Solicitors and ‘Life for a Kid’ Foundation. Josh was joined at the training session by Kath Lavery, Chair of the board at Neil Hudgell Solictors, and Dean Hoggard from ‘Life for a Kid’ as the brand new kit was presented to the Eels’ players.
Josh was given a rundown of the sport’s rules by several members of the squad and also received an Eels’ training top from young Charlie Fox, one of the Eels’ players. It was a great day for all concerned and Josh was impressed with what he saw.
“I really enjoyed the visit and what’s great about the sport is that it’s open age so everyone can get involved and have a go,” he said. “The enthusiasm that all of the players had towards the training session was terrific and I’m sure that they can continue to grow as a club and go a long way.”
