Footballer in the making!

Maltby Manor Academy student Archie Thornton has been spotted by football scouts from Manchester City.  

Archie plays for the Maltby Juniors Under 7s team and attended a tournament in Barnsley which involved 10 - 15 other teams. The tournament was run by scouts from Manchester City Football Club and they awarded Archie the “Best Player” award.

Since the tournament, Archie is now training for Manchester City three times a week. We look forward to what the future holds for Archie. Well done!
