Way To Go Elijah!

Stanhope student Elijah is in an incredibly fortunate position of being offered a place to represent the Kent Schools FA in a football tournament in Dallas, Texas over the Easter Holiday. The Year 8 student has been asked to play at the U14 category even though he is U13’s as he is in the 2003 birth category so his parents are really proud of him. Dad, Travis, said “The Dallas Cup is invitation only and one of the largest Youth football tournaments, across 47 US States and over 100 countries. Elijah will be part of this event entertaining over 100,000 spectators during the tournament”.  Football fanatic Elijah has played football for as long as he can remember and is rightly excited about his trip “ It’s really cool to have been asked to play. We have a special tracksuit and kit to wear which is great. I’m really looking forward to it”. Mr Gardner, is equally as enthusiastic, “Elijah is a great lad and a good footballer. His strengths are speed, agility and rapid feet. We all wish him well on his travels”.
