For West Didsbury and Chorlton AFC Juniors Spotlight, we interviewed one of the Junior players to find out what he thinks about playing for West and what he knows about his team sponsor.
Meet Wilf who plays for West u17s
Q: How long have you been playing for West? I started when I was about 6 at the Soccer Skills club so I’ve been at the club for 10 years. I’m due a testimonial this year!
Q: How is the team doing? This is our first year in the Youth League and so far we have won 1, drawn 1 and lost 1. We drew 4-4 last weekend, same as the first team!
Q: What’s your most special moment playing for West? When playing for the u9s we lost the game 5-2 but I scored my first ever league goal and we went home after the game and re-enacted the goal in the garden, over and over again.
Q: What’s the team spirit like? It’s really good – the players support each other whether we play well or play badly.
Q: Do you remember when South Manchester Credit Union Started sponsoring your team? We’ve been sponsored by the credit union for 4 years. It’s nice to wear a shirt for something you know is a good cause and a local company that supports the community.
Q: How did you feel when you received your Young Savers Account with a free £10? I am always delighted to receive free money!
Q. Now that you are a Young Saver, are you looking to build your savings? I prefer spending, but I am trying to save.
Q. What are you looking to save for in the near future? FIFA 21 is top of my list.
Q: What are you looking to save for in the long term? I’m saving for a car for when I pass my test next year.
It was great to interview Wilf. We’ve been sponsoring his team for 4 years now and we’ve been able to watch them grow up from the sidelines. There’s been some amazing final scores and we even got to watch them play an international match!
