Taking their soccer skills stateside

They say if you can make it there, you can make it anywhere. And this July, 16 footballers from Thomas Rotherham College are hoping to kick start their sporting careers as they take a trip to the bright lights of New York City.

This will be the fifth stateside

trip organised by the college’s PE teacher, David Woodcock, with a mixed-ability squad taking part in the nine-day expedition from 3rd to 12th July. Along with keen footballers

who are currently studying for their A-levels or BTEC diplomas, they will also be joined by players from TRC’s GOAL academy programme. During their time in New York,

the squad will play three games against local clubs; Brooklyn Italians, Massapequa SC and Downtown United. Experiencing an international

tour, the players will get the chance to show off their sporting skills on some of New York’s finest pitches including on Randall’s Island and the unique Brooklyn Bridge Pier Five – let’s hope Lady Liberty is cheering them on that day. Following in the boots of TRC

alumni, some of the young lads will be looking to gain scholarships

in the US and a visit to Hofstra University is planned for them to check out the campus and sporting facilities there. As the city that never sleeps,

there will be no time for rest as the days spent off the pitch will be used to trek around the Empire State and take in some of its most iconic sites. From the world famous

skyscrapers and billboard-bible in Times Square, to the moving 9/11 Memorial and museum, there will also be chance to relax on some of Long Island’s best beaches along with a trip to the water park. And of course, the sports team

couldn’t go all the way to New York without a visit to the Yankee Stadium. But this year, they will get two

March to the Arch

Ahead of next season’s Steel City derbies, two football fans are setting aside their rivalries and uniting together as they tackle a 26-mile route between London stadiums to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK.

On Sunday 22nd July, The

Wortley Arms’ owner Andy Gabbitas, a lifelong Owl, is joining Blade Aled Williams on the sponsored walk as part of the charity’s Men United plight. Kicking things off down at the

Olympic Park in Stratford, Andy and Aled will set off on their journey from the home of West Ham United, heading on towards Brisbane Road to National League club Leyton Orient. The route then takes them

up north to the development of Spurs’ new White Hart Lane ground, before going on to their

north London rivals Arsenal at the Emirates. The final leg of the journey sees

the team celebrate along Wembley Way before reaching the stadium’s glorious steel arch. With friends or family affected

by the disease, Andy and Aled are hoping their joint efforts will help raise money and awareness for prostate cancer which kills one man every 45 minutes. “Ignoring prostate cancer won’t

beat it. The Wortley Arms is a Men United pub and we regularly hold events to raise funds to support Prostate Cancer UK, including Aled’s monthly Pop Quiz,” Andy says.
