Sporting Success ⚽️

School News 7th Mar 2019

One of students, Elliott was spotted by a scout whilst he was playing for Gainsborough Trinity U13’s. He was invited to go for a trial at Sheffield Wednesday
which eventually led to him being taken on by the academy in September 2015. Elliott travelled over to Sheffield three times a week after school for training and travelled all over the country on a Saturday to play matches as well as playing at some amazing stadiums including Hillsborough.

In March 2017 whilst playing for the U15’s, Elliott was offered a two-year scholarship contract which was an amazing reward for all the hard work, dedication and sacrifices he had made. He officially signed his contract in April 2018 and after his GCSE’s, he began his scholarship with the under  18’s in July, starting with a two week trip to Portugal for pre-season training. Elliott has also moved to Sheffield, living away from home Monday to Friday.

“This has been an amazing opportunity and although it has taken a lot of hard work I am excited to see what the future brings.”

Congratulations Elliott, we look forward to hearing about your future achievements!
