Steven Benda joined Swansea City AFC Foundation's Premier League Primary Stars project to help celebrate Ysgol Yr Hendy’s 110-year anniversary.

The school, which celebrate the same founding year as the Swans, was treated to a visit from the German goalkeeper as part of their Primary Stars lesson.

Benda took the time to answer questions from the pupils and staff, before facing some penalties from the pupils as part of their PE session.

The 23-year-old was glad to be able to come down to the school, enjoying his chance to engage with the local community.

“The community is a massive part of Swansea City,” said Benda

“They are all really nice children; they had some really good questions and took some good penalties as well.

“I think it’s massive for the players to come out into the community, seeing the children and hopefully giving them some inspiration and helping out with the community is a big part of what we do.

“The fans are supporting us every game and the young children asking us for pictures and autographs, their support always helps and it is only right we give something back."
