From January 2013, the 17 new boys (dubbed ‘the second generation’) will go to school, attend football training and live at the Foundation’s Academy in Tombo. The boys, all aged 11 – 12, were awarded five year scholarships to the Academy and new classroom and dormitory blocks have been built to accommodate them.

Johnny McKinstry, Academy Manager, said; “The standard of football at our trials was extremely high, and we took a long time to decide on the right boys for this opportunity.
