Pupils at a Doncaster school enjoyed a surprise visitor as part of an English lesson.

Students at Danum Academy were challenged to write a letter to a person that inspires them, with the aim of persuading them to reply with a ‘good luck’ card for the pupils’ upcoming exams.

Among those who received a letter was Doncaster Rovers goalkeeper Ross Turnbull – who asked to visit the school to personally deliver his card to Jake Hoyle in Year 11.

A spokesman said: “Ross arrived at Jake’s lesson, much to Jake’s complete surprise, and delivered his card alongside some goalkeeper gloves.

“Thank you to Ross for helping to encourage our pupils during such a crucial final few weeks.”
