Former Pupil Will Couch Begins Scholarship at Burnley FC

We are delighted to share that former student, Will Couch, has joined Burnley Football Club’s Academy.

This impressive achievement is a result of Will’s hard work and dedication to football over the last few years. Everyone at Westholme would like to offer their congratulations to Will, whom we are extremely proud of.

Will joins the Clarets on a two year scholarship and will compete in the U18 Premier League Northern Division against the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Everton, and Blackburn Rovers.

Will’s very proud family have expressed that Westholme’s quality of education and school football – which enabled Will to represent  the Independent Schools Football Association (ISFA) U15’s National Team – were a significant part of his confidence and development.

We wish Will the very best of luck going forward in his career with Burnley FC!
