Coach Jamie Johnson said: "School liaison is very important to the club because it is where all our mini and youth players come from, and ultimately they will hopefully feed into our senior teams.
"It was a successful day and we intend to arrange similar events in the future.
"The students from Freman were an enormous help with their coaching and organisational skills.
"The boys and girls were very enthusiastic. They grasped the basics very quickly and some of them showed exceptional talent, which bodes well for England's World Cup campaigns in 2023 and 2027!
