Man United scout talks to Burnt Mill sports students

IT’S not all glamour living in the world of football, students have been learning.

Chief scout at Manchester United football club, Jim Lawlor, spoke with GCSE PE students at Burnt Mill Academy to give them an insight into the profession.

He told how it takes skill, determination and commitment to be successful in the sporting world, but also how it’s not only sportsmen who get to live it.

Paul Williams, assistant headteacher, said: “Jim came to inspire our students to consider a career in the sporting profession. But, he told them it’s not all about being a footballer, as lots more professions are involved in football, from physiotherapists to PR managers.

“He said how impressed he was at how ambitious our students are and awarded a Man Utd t shirt to Charlie Blye-Stewart in Year 10 for the best contribution to the discussion.
