Over 200 children from the Manchester area were rewarded for their hard work in an after-school initiative by City star Aleksander Kolarov on Tuesday evening.
The Serbian dropped in at Eastlands to present the Blue Zone Awards to each one, as part of the Playing For Success initiative, a partnership between the club and Manchester City Council.
The initiative aims to raise standards in numeracy, literacy and ICT skills, as well as raising self-esteem by using sport tom inspire motivation and learning.
As well as receiving their award from Aleks, every child had their photo taken with the defender who also stayed to sign autographs for everyone on and enjoyable and successful night.
