West Bromwich Albion Post 16 Training

On Tuesday 12th September,West Albion players Claudio Yacob and Boaz Myhill visited Holyhead School.

They offered advice to the Year 11 football team and the Year 12 students working towards their BTEC Sports Diplomas.


As the players walked in, the Year 11 Football Team lined up to shake t

heir hands as a sign of respect and welcomed them into our school. The players explained to our students how they began their footballing journeys having been ordinary people before stardom. The players mentioned how they started at the bottom

and then worked their way up to Premiership Football and it’s is not always an easy journey. Myhill said, “It’s important to have a positive attitude and have a good time.”

Later,Yacob and Myhill played a football match with the students on the Post 16 BTec Sport Extended Diploma to show them what being in the diploma was like. Claudio was on one team and Boaz on the other.

We also spoke to 6th former Kadeem who was one of the many students involved in this diploma, he commented, “It was a good experience,” he also said, “I learnt that you should focus in school if you want to get further in life.” We also spoke to Cabdi who was also involved in this diploma, he said “It was a really good experience and I enjoyed it alot!”

Overall it was a really good afternoon which everybody thoroughly enjoyed.
