Leigh Genesis F.C would like to congratulate our U13 Protons player Ethan Harris on recently getting scouted for Wigan Athletic Academy.
Ethan joined Leigh Genesis just over a year ago and since then his overall game has dramatically improved with Ethan now being his teams top scorer and a very popular character with his team mates. Ethan has since joined our U13 Creation Saturday team and has made a massive impact within that team to.
U13 Protons Manager Neil Sumner said "Ethan came down about 18 months ago, he only knew one of my other players, they go to school Together. Ethan joined our team because he wanted to test himself at a higher level with better players, he settled in straight away and has pace to burn! As soon as we went to 11 a side and offsides etc he really excelled, and is currently our leading goal scorer with only a few games of the season left!
He has really improved on his finishing as he used to get in good positions but not always finish his chance, but the last 6 months he has really improved this side of his game! I wish Ethan all the very best of luck and we are very proud of what he has achieved so far"
Ethan recently attended a pro 11 trails session down at Salford sports village where he was then scouted by wigan athletic academy who were down there that day. Ethan made his debut for the academy just last week in a game against bolton wanderers. Wigan were 2-0 winners with Ethan grabbing the second goal, not a bad way to start your journey is it?
Everyone at Leigh Genesis F.C would like to wish Ethan the very best of luck as he continues his football journey, please keep us posted. We are Proud to have you as part of our club and to have been part of your football journey!
Keep up the good work but most important enjoy it!
