Young Hoops Club Hallowe’en Party
SUNDAY, November 3 saw over 300 members of our Young Hoops Club join us in the Kerrydale Suite here at Celtic Park for our annual Hallowe'en parties, and were delighted as a host of first-team stars came along and joined in the fun.
Kris Commons, Joe Ledley, Lucasz Zaluska, Mikael Lustig and Emilio Izaguirre were the special guests this time around, and spent time with our young fans who arrived in the form of Batman, the Hulk, Disney Princesses and a whole host of other creative and colourful characters.
As well as the chance to pose for pictures and obtain autographs from the players, youngsters were also entertained with a number of games and activities throughout the afternoon, with a soft play area also available for our youngest Hoops in another great afternoon for our Young Hoops Club members and their families.
