On Tuesday 21st November St Patrick’s Catholic College and the Martin Gray Football Academy held the kit launch and contract signing evening.
Our students were presented with their new kit and took part in a training session lead by Brian Atkinson (UEFA A Licence), a former football for Sunderland and Darlington and Sean Gregan of Leeds, Preston and West Bromwich Albion and of course Martin who bring a wealth of expertise and experience that our pupils will benefit from. The students then joined with parents and family members who were treated to a presentation.
Martin, a UEFA A Licensed coach and former professional footballer for Sunderland, Oxford and Darlington, spoke about his vision for the academy and how they plan to work with St Patrick’s Catholic College in the future. The evening ended with the students signing their contracts and an opportunity for photographs with Martin.
