Kids Q&A With Maupay And McNeil!

Dwight McNeil and Neal Maupay were quizzed by a group of schoolchildren as they got their first experience of Everton’s award-winning charity in action.

The Blues duo took part in a session ran by Everton in the Community’s Premier League Primary Stars programme.


Both players visited Kirkdale St Lawrence Primary School, less than a mile from Goodison Park, to meet pupils from the school before getting stuck into a number of educational-based challenges, all of which took a sporting twist.

McNeil and Maupay enjoyed a football-themed literacy game using a match report from an Everton match to identify grammar and punctuation changes before taking part in a question and answer session.

The children covered a range of football and non-football topics, from where Maupay and McNeil would most like to travel in space to what they made of their maiden Merseyside derby - and Official Members can watch the full session above now! 

Premier League Primary Stars aims to inspire children to learn, be active and develop important life skills by using the appeal of Everton Football Club and the Premier League.

The programme, which is currently working in 61 schools across Merseyside, its highest since launching in 2017 is this year aiming to bridge the education equality gap amongst children living in the area by providing schools in the L4 postcode free access to its Primary Stars programme, with the Kirkdale ward – the location of Kirkdale Primary School and Goodison Park – falling in the bottom 1 per cent of deprived areas in the UK.
