YOUNGSTERS learned a whole new ball game as NFL team Chicago Bears held an American Football master class to kick off their Mini Monsters tour across the UK.

More than 120 children from 12 schools attended the activity at Selborne Primary School in Perivale on Monday.

Former Bears wide receiver Johnny Knox helped to put on a session focused on healthy eating, physical activity and hydration through fun, non-contact American football drills.

Bears’ Manager of Youth Football and Community Programmes, Gustavo Silva, said: “Today was fantastic. Seeing the children throw themselves into something new and having so much fun was great.

“We really had so much fun in Ealing and we hope to come back soon!”

The Bears are taking their clinics on an eight-stop tour of the UK from July 11-22.
