A Future in Football

A talented young footballer has gained his FA Level 1 and 2 football coaching badges.

When asked what his greatest achievement was he replied; "Becoming a fully qualified coach which has enabled me to help those in the community to thrive and prosper within football, and incorporate the John Thornton Ethos and help them to 'climb as high as you can dream'."

The coaching qualifications have given him opportunities with Poole Town and Wimborne First Team. His dream is to become a professional footballer or coach.

"Words cannot express the feeling of gratitude towards them. It has had such a strong and influential impact on my life and so many others is amazing. Through this scholarship many closed doors have now been opened due to the donations of others and it's humbling to have people who help and believe in your aspirations and contribute to achieving them. Thank you!"

We wish you the best of luck with your footballing future!
