Recently Year 8 pupil Ben Cutler attended football trials at the local Helsby 4G for the Chester FC Academy. He impressed in the trials and was invited to take part in further games against Rochdale and TNS. Chester were sufficiently impressed to offer him a schoolboy contract to the end of 2022 season.
Ben was invited down over the Easter period to sign in the Chester FC boardroom and also played his first match on the Deva Stadium pitch. Having performed consistently well in midfield for the College football team until lockdown we hope he will prosper with the extra training available and games against Premier League academies in the north-west of England over the next year.
Ben will continue to represent the school, and as we return to competitive school football in September will be part of a strong Year 9 college football team.
