VISITORS to a football club got an unexpected treat when Cinderella popped in to sharpen up her foot skills.
Laura Evans, who will play Cinderella at The Orchard Theatre, Dartford, this Christmas, met footballer Jamie Coyle at Dartford Football Club in Princes Road for a training session on Friday.
The Welsh actress will be securing her place in the hearts of audiences at the pantomime, which runs from December 5 to January 10.
A theatre spokesperson said: "Beginning her story washing dishes, sweeping floors and dusting shelves, Cinderella ends up meeting her Prince Charming with the help of Fairy Godmother, Leslie Joseph.
"And in recent times we have seen Dartford FC promoted to the Isthmian League Premiere Division in 2007 and secure their place there by finishing in eighth position during the 2008-2009 season.
"But the question on everybody's lips this year is will Cinderella get to marry the Prince of her dreams and will Dartford FC get promoted to the next league?"
