Luke inspires Salmo

LEINSTER, Ireland and Lions player Luke Fitzgerald recently visited Kirwan Park to meet the Salmo U-13s.

With 43 children, the team is one of the largest in the area at this grade and fielded two sides in their league this season.

The team had been told a very special guest would be attending their Sunday morning training session. His arrival created a huge stir and Luke very kindly posed for photographs and autographs.

He gave the enthralled U-13s some tips on good nutrition and diet and stressed working on the basics of your game.

Luke's own career began as a youngster on Sunday mornings and following this visit he has a new generation of fans who want to follow in his footsteps!
