Sheffield FC’s youngster Alfie Eagle has really caught the eye of the big boys already, as the 16 year old starts a two week trial with Rotherham United today, having impressed the local Championship side in a recent pre-season friendly.
Alfie is one year into a two year football and education scholarship on the Sheffield FC / Maltby Academy Trust programme, and made his first start for the World’s First just two weeks ago, getting rave reviews for his performance against Penistone Church.
He followed that up with another solid display against a very strong Millers side last week, impressing once again at the left-back position.
The youngster is one of many coming through our development programme getting a chance to play first team football, and our U19s have a number of talented players all looking to develop through our system.
We wish Alfie all the best in his trial, and hope he won’t be the last success story to come from the various Sheffield FC Scholarship programmes.
