OSH Student meets Football Hero

May 20th, 2014
FF Kewford Eagles

OSH student Joe Woodall met football hero Sir Trevor Booking CBE at the opening of The KW Sports Ground – ‘Eagle Park’ in April.  Sir Trevor officially opened the new home of the Kewford Eagles by starting the first match played between U17 and U18 boy’s teams.

Congratulations to Joe, who not only captained the winning U17s team, but scored one of the winning goals.

Joe is currently studying Business Studies, PE and Psychology at A Level and is hoping to study Sports Psychology at University.  He volunteers as a coach at Kewford Eagles and is currently training the new U7s team for next season.

“It was an honour to meet someone who has been involved in the game for so long and at the highest level” said Joe. “He obviously has a great passion for football and it was a proud moment to walk out with him onto our new ground. He was really nice and spent lots of time with everyone signing certificates and even football boots.”
