Myerscough College Football Alumni

Anthony Pilkington BTEC Level 2 Extended Certificate Football Studies

“I’ve been lucky enough to be a professional footballer for ten years. My amazing journey started when I was scouted during our triumphant English Colleges league season.
My career then came alive at Huddersfield Town which led to a £3 million move to the Premier League with Norwich City and most recently, on to Cardiff City. I’ve had a number of career highlights including the adrenalin rush of scoring a goal in a play off final at Wembley, where I got Man of the Match. I’ve also been capped by the Republic of Ireland U21s, and was delighted to become the first Myerscough student to feature in a full international, when I played in the qualifiers for the 2014 World Cup. I’ve earned nine caps so far and got my first international goal against the USA. It’s every lad’s dream really – and I’m living it!”
