Fleming visits his old primary school

31 March 2022

Brandon Fleming took a trip down memory lane when he visited his old primary school in Beverley.

The 22-year-old returned to Swinemoor Primary for the first time since leaving 11 years ago to speak to the entire school in a special assembly.

The left-back recalled his happy memories of attending the school and shared his journey from primary student to professional footballer.

He answered a series of questions from excited pupils, ranging from childhood idols to favourite hobbies, and gave advice to the budding footballers eager to follow in his footsteps!

The defender was amazed to see a framed photo of his much younger self balancing a ball on his head and was then given a tour of the school, intrigued to see what had changed.

Stepping foot in his old classrooms, Fleming reminisced about playing football on the school pitch and encountered a number of his former teachers who still remember him fondly after all these years.

“It was really nostalgic,” Fleming admitted.

“There are a lot of teachers who taught me when I was really young who are still at the school now – great people who only want the best for you.

“It was really good to go back and see what it looks like today. It’s a great school and set me up for life as a person.

“You never know what the kids are going to come out with but there were some great questions and I thoroughly enjoyed speaking to them.

“I really enjoyed going back – it was a good day!”
