Saints fly-half Will Hooley joined pupils from schools across the county at the Northamptonshire Children’s University graduation ceremony to celebrate the sporting achievements of youngsters.

The scheme is for children aged between five and 14 and aims to celebrate participation in sports, arts and after-school clubs.

Will gave an inspiring talk to the children, sharing his experience of training with his hero Jonny Wilkinson and playing for the England Under 18s and 20s international team.

Tim Hodey, Children’s University Lead, said: “It was great to have Will come along to talk to the children.”
