Hibs players Danny Handling (pictured) and Liam Henderson  launched the 90 Minutes Club at Brunstane Primary School last week.

The Hibernian “90 Minutes” Club is an exciting and enjoyable way to help P5-P7 pupils re-engage with learning and develop positive connections with school using extra-curricular football related themes and activities.

For eight to ten weeks during term time, pupils are invited to participate in weekly sessions consisting of two 45-minute halves.

The first half is dedicated homework time, where pupils can focus on completing assigned homework with the support of a learning assistant.

The second half provides the participants coaching in professional football tactics and techniques by a qualified Hibernian Community Coach and time for small sided games.

The “90 Minutes” Club includes an “extra time” visit behind the scenes at Easter Road Stadium.

The Club have thanked Sean McGovern, Director of CBR Maintenance Group, who sponsor the Brunstane Primary School Club.
