Friday 4th November
A few weeks ago we were contacted and received notice that one of our upcoming sporting stars was going to be recognised at a national Young Sportsperson Awards event in the UK. The awards are run in partnership with SportsAid, the charity responsible for funding emerging sports talent in the UK. Over 400 SportsAid athletes have represented Great Britain at the Rio 2016 Olympics and Paralympic Games.
The footage that we supplied was of Robbie legg, an up and coming footballer with big dreams , who, to date, has made 24 appearances for Guernsey FC as they compete in the Ryman League, which sits just 7 leagues below the Premier League. Robbie has had trials at Fulham when he was 15 and trials for Brighton at the age of 13. He is the youngest player in history to play for the club, and their youngest ever goal scorer! And, what’s even better, he is youngest player in the Channel Islands to have played in the FA Cup. As a junior, Robbie scored 86 goals in the local league in one season! You can check out the video that was showcased at the event below and read more about the awards here.
