USM Finch Farm was in full festive swing as the Everton first team enjoyed fun and games with more than 100 youngsters at the Junior Blues Christmas Party.
As part of the Club’s Blue Crimbo campaign, Everton and partners USM teamed up to host an afternoon to remember for young Season Ticket Members and Official We Are Everton Members who were selected from a random draw to attend the Toffees’ state-of-the-art training base in Halewood.
Blues first-team stars took part in a series of fun activities which included defender Yerry Mina joining children on a bouncy castle and inflatable igloo, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Ademola Lookman and Cenk Tosun involved in small-sided matches, and Jordan Pickford between the sticks for a penalty shootout competition.
Activity stations were placed around the Club’s indoor pitch, with Theo Walcott on hand to help with face painting, Seamus Coleman, Phil Jagielka and Michael Keane getting stuck in with a game of dodgeball, Morgan Schneiderlin and Oumar Niasse giving Jenga a go, and Tom Davies, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Jonjoe Kenny getting their thinking caps on for a game of giant Connect Four.
Blue Crimbo is Everton’s annual festive campaign to create lasting memories for Blues fans over the Christmas period.
