Theo Walcott has given his backing to the new Premier League Primary Stars project, which was launched this week.

PL Primary Stars is the Premier League’s most ambitious community programme to date, looking to provide free curriculum-linked teaching resources for girls and boys aged 5-11 in 10,000 primary schools in England and Wales by 2019.
