Hull City's Will Keane and Shaun Maloney see work of Premier League programme at Westfield Primary School

Primary school teachers can register for free resources and parents can nominate schools by visiting Premier League Primary Stars 

Children from Westfield Primary School in Cottingham, East Riding of Yorkshire, had a maths lesson with a difference when Hull City's Will Keane and Shaun Maloney joined them in the classroom this week.

The visit of the two players marked the launch of Premier League Primary Stars as well as the new PL Primary Stars Kit and Equipment initiative, which donates valuable items such as shirts, bibs, cones and training balls to schools that can be used for different subject areas.

Schools have until 9 June to apply for either a kit or equipment package.

As well as joining a PL Primary Stars lesson, Keane and Maloney gave kit and equipment and were special guests at a school assembly.

"Most people love playing football, love watching football and being part of it - and Premier League players actually coming into school creates massive joy for all the children and they get a big buzz," Keane told hullcitytigers.com.

"It's important for professional footballers to be role models and hopefully the kids can take on board what was said in the session and use it to continue with their development."
