Form 5 pupil TJ has already caught the eye of football scouts up and down the country and his talent has recently been rewarded with a Performance Scholarship with Football Conference side Hereford Utd. The Performance Scholarship provided by the Hereford United Community Trust Football & Education Programme will provide TJ with some specialist support as he follows his football ambitions.
The support will include a structured 8-10 hour per week training programme as well as an individual Strength & Conditioning Programme. TJ will also participate in a programme of matches in the National/Regional Football league as well as the FA Youth Cup and HFA Giantkiller’s Cup and will be supervised by UEFA Licensed coaches. He will also follow an educational programme which will be supported by Hereford United’s education partner, VLUK.
Hereford United’s Community Trust Manager, Jamie Edwards, said: “Our best wishes and many congratulations go to TJ on this award which comes as a direct result of his hard work over the past 2 seasons.”
Head of Christ College, Emma Taylor, said: “TJ has impressed football scouts up and down the country and we’re all very excited for him. He has shown great maturity this year in passing on his own footballing knowledge and skills to his fellow pupils and we look forward to following his progress on this programme.”
TJ has already started to acclimatise himself to life as a professional footballer. On Thursday 15th May, TJ travelled to Manchester where he attended a Manchester City ‘Play on the Pitch’ Event at the Etihad Stadium. After a welcome reception and warm-up, TJ participated in a match on the Barclays Premier League champions’ pitch. Afterwards, TJ and his family were treated to hospitality in the Mancunian Suite at the stadium.
