Tom, who takes his GCSE exams in the summer, plays with Manchester City and was recently offered a two year Scholarship at the Premier League Club.

He joins Tom Taiwo (Hibernian & England), Aidan White (Leeds United & Ireland), Niall Canavan (Scunthorpe United & Ireland), Luke Hendrie (Manchester United & Scot- land), Jordan Hendrie (Bolton Wanderers & Scotland).

St Mary’s Assistant head- teacher David Geldart was full of praise for Tom.
