Local Player Conquers America
The Nationals featured 8 teams competing against each other from across the whole of North America, and Genesee came from behind to win its first ever National title by beating the reigning champions and top seeded Richland College (from Dallas, Texas) 2-1, in a match that was televised across the globe.
Jack scored four goals in his first season and was praised by his coach, who said: “Jack is a wonderful lad and very popular with his team mates.”
Jack previously played for Cranfield Colts for over ten years (Bedfordshire Youth Saturday League), and played in the inaugural Copa Del Beds Competition before the start of the 2016/17 season, which was organised by the Bedfordshire FA, to enable a link between youth and adult football. This led to Jack playing for Cranfield United Reserves last season, where he scored 9 goals, played in the County Cup Final and was named their Young Player of the Year. He made his debut for the Cranfield First team before the close of season, and played in the Beds County Sunday League for Houghton.
