Great Opportunity For Jets Youngster
The MK Dons Academy have offered promising local Leavesden youngster Liam Sole a football scholarship with them.
Oxhey Jets Academy have mentored Liam this season and the decision has delighted Academy manager Warren Gladdy.
“When I heard that MK Dons offered Liam a place in their Academy I was so happy for him. He has tremendous talent.
Liam has had some highs and lows during his development but he has never given up. His hard work, determination, and talent have created this opportunity. Hopefully, this will be the start of something special for him.”
Oxhey Jets owner and general manager, John Elliott BEM, added. “Liam has real talent and has the ability to cruise past other players. He is also a great kid, polite, respectful and determined to succeed.”
Liam’s parents praised Warren and the Oxhey Jets Academy in their role in helping Liam get this chance. “Since joining the Jets Liam has found his love for football again.”
Liam looks forward to getting started at MK Dons. “I really appreciate what Warren and the Jets have done for me. They looked after me, got me back on track, and helped create this new opportunity. Now I need to make the most of it”.
Liam’s achievement was also covered by the Watford Observer. Below is a reprint of their article along with a link to the original page.
