Anthony Pilkington BTEC Level 2 Extended Certificate Football Studies

“Nothing can beat the adrenalin rush that comes from scoring a goal, especially in a Football League play-off final at Wembley. I got man of the match for that game, what a way to end the season! I was scouted at Myerscough around the time we won the England Colleges league and I got to represent England in Italy; then I signed to Stockport County and scored three goals in my first four matches. A move to Huddersfield Town saw me become top scorer and earn a dream move to the Premier League with Norwich City. After being in the Republic of Ireland U21s, I 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. It’s every lad’s dream really, and I’m living it!”
