Joseph McWilliam and Joseph Gelhardt in Year 9 have recently had success in their burgeoning football careers. Both boys have been offered Professional Football Apprenticeships at Wigan Football Academy. This has come two years ahead of the usual schedule as both boys have shown the ability and attitude to such a level that they deserve it earlier.
The students work extremely hard to balance their football training programme and their school studies. They train up to three times a week and play a match every weekend. Their hard work and determination has paid off. The school is extremely proud of them both and wanted to share their success with the rest of the staff, students and wider community.
