David Nugent may have left school years ago but he was recently back visiting St Gregory's Primary School on Blackpool Road, Preston to hand out 50 tickets as part of his player sponsorship by Forbes Solicitors.
Nugent arrived to a school full of eagerly awaiting pupils, most of them PNE fans, ready and waiting with questions for the England ace. The pupils loved every minute of David being at their school and for having such a highly rated English youngster give up his afternoon to spend time answering questions, signing autographs and having pictures taken.
Forbes Solicitors has been sponsoring Nugent since he joined PNE in 2005. The firms Managing Partner, Winston Hood, is a lifelong PNE fan and had heard great things about the player, even though he was a relative unknown at the time. Winston commented "I am delighted with Forbes' sponsorship of David Nugent, he has had a rapid rise to fame but takes it all in his stride. We wish him the best of luck for the future and will continue cheering him on as both a supporter and sponsor."
Forbes also donated a signed PNE shirt to St Gregory's on the day for them to raffle, they raised £184.80 for the Mission Together charity.
