George Hirst and Janoi Donacien visit Portman Road EPDC

Town stars George Hirst and Janoi Donacien visited the Foundation’s Elite Player Development Centre at Portman Road on Wednesday evening.

Fresh from starting Town’s 1-0 away win at Southampton on Tuesday night, George was joined by Janoi at the session, marking his second appearance at a Foundation session in 7 days.

The pair took time to meet the participants of the session on a rainy night at Portman Road, answering questions on their journey to professional football, the Club’s start to the season so far, and offering advice to the young players present.

The Foundation’s EPDC sessions take place at centres across Suffolk, Norfolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire, offering top level coaching and a pathway to the Club’s Academy.
