Footballer wins player of the match

A young footballer has been awarded Player of the Match at his club recently in recognition of his sporting efforts.


Ralph Gallaway, Year 7, joined Pool Academy in September after leaving Illogan Primary School and is already impressing staff with his achievements.

He regularly takes part in football training in Troon and has been playing the sport since he was five years old. He has also been playing basketball at home for the last three years.

Ralph enjoys studying at Pool Academy and says his favourite subjects are PE, Computer Science and English.

He said: “I play football in Troon and I really enjoy it.  I take part in football matches and have recently won Player of the Match. I was given it for my good efforts. I was really pleased to receive it and my family were really proud of me. It was the first time I have every been given the award.”

He has another match coming up in the next couple of weeks.
