Maltby - sports person of the year.

Archie was nominated as sports person of the year due to his dedication to football.

Archie has been at Manchester City's football academy since January 2016 and is currently playing in their under 7's elite group. He was scouted by Manchester City whilst playing in a tournament for his then grassroots team Maltby Juniors and was voted 'player of the tournament'. Since then Archie has been training at the City Football Academy 3 days a week after school and playing matches against the likes of West Ham, Aston Villa and Chelsea.

He has even played at St George's Park. He has been selected to go on some upcoming tours to France and Germany this half term where he will compete against teams from across Europe including Barcelona. Archie is a very bright boy academically and even though he leaves school early to travel to Manchester 3 times a week, his studies have not been neglected. He is hardworking and dedicated to having a good education and playing the sport he loves. Archie has an amazing work ethic and is keeping up with his classmates. There are days when Archie has come into school tired after training the night before but he still has a smile on his face and gives 100%.
