Football Flick’s ‘Granaldo’ goes viral over Lockdown

Violet Slater, Football Flick Athlete Kodi Slater’s grandma, has found international recognition as ‘Granaldo’ after a video of her playing Football in the back garden with Football Flick went Viral.

Granaldo, as now she’s now known, was featured all over social media in the UK & Internationally. Former England International & Match Of The Day Presenter Gary Lineker shared his support for Violet’s skills after Local ITV news picked up on her talent.

Violet has been getting into her Football thanks to her Grandson, who is a Football Flick Athlete and part of the Football Flick Futures programme, which will be re-launching soon.

Speaking to the Shropshire Star, Kodi’s Dad & Violet’s son, Phil Slater said: “It’s been brilliant, she’s loving all of the attention. It’s something that’s brought them [Kodi & Violet] both closer together.”

It shows how far a feel-good story goes in these testing times, but also how Football & Football Flick isn’t just for kids, but all the family as well.
