Celebrating Sporting Success

Wellacre students have been keen to share their exciting news of football contracts with high-profile North West clubs and we are beyond proud to see them being recognised and rewarded for their talent and commitment in the sport they love.

In March, Dylan, Year 8, signed a 12 month contract with Stoke City Football Club.  The signing and opportunity has been all the more exciting for Dylan as he has only been playing football for 18 months.

Starting his sporting career in Athletics for two years, Dylan then decided to join Trafford Youth football, in Year 7, before moving to a Saturday team with Coach Right.  It was here that he was spotted by a coach who organised an 8 week trial, and by the fourth week Dylan had been signed! 

Recently, Dylan had the fantastic opportunity to play at the Bet365 stadium in Stoke. The Stoke City U13s team played and won against Leicester, 2-0.

Dylan said:

“I play football for the enjoyment and playing at the Bet365 stadium was a great experience.”

We have recently celebrated other young sportspeople at Wellacre.  Adam, in Year 7, has signed his first two year contract with Crewe Alexandra Football Club, and fellow Year 7, Cian, has also put pen to paper this year to sign with Port Vale Football Club for two years.

Principal Mrs Sharrock said:

“It is always great to hear about the wider interests and talents of our students. We wish them every success in their sporting pursuits.”

Dylan, Adam and Cian, your passion and pride is clear; good luck in pursuing your sporting dreams!
