We were joined by a special group of visitors at Rockliffe this week, with members of NUR Fitness Group invited to watch the first team train before being joined by Mo Besic for a question and answer session.
As part of the on-going RiverSideBySide initiative, the group, which comprises of members from a BAME background, have been working together with MFC Foundation to take part in a 12-week healthy lifestyle course at the Riverside Stadium.
NUR Fitness is a women’s fitness programme, and is based upon the simple idea that getting fit should be inclusive, enjoyable and rewarding for all women regardless of age, culture or previous experience.
The aim of the course has also been to teach the women more about the football club the Foundation, and what happens behind-the-scenes both on matchdays, and during the week.
They have met a number of different members of staff from different departments, and gained an insight as to their specific roles at the club.
The group have attended a couple of matches over the past few months, and greatly enjoyed the experience.
This week’s Rockliffe experience saw the ladies watch Tony Pulis put his squad through their paces before the players posed for photos and signed autographs.
The group then returned to the Media Suite at Rockliffe where Mo Besic took time out to answer questions.
