CONGRATULATIONS to Old Elean, Jack Tooth, who has been shortlisted in this year’s Football Writers’ Association ‘Student Football Writer of the Year’ competition!

Jack, who left King’s Ely after Sixth Form in 2012, is in the running to win the competition’s Hugh McIlvanney Award with an article he wrote for FourFourTwo Magazine entitled: ‘In defence of the referee: what ex-pro pundits are getting wrong’. You can read the article here:

Jack started at King’s Ely Acremont in Year 1. After Sixth Form, he studied History and French at the University of York. His first job after completing his degree was as an editor for the educational publishers, CGP. Jack is now coming towards the end of an NCTJ qualification in Multimedia Journalism at News Associates in Manchester, with a view to becoming a Journalist.

There were more than 500 entries in the competition, so being shortlisted is a huge achievement. The winners will be announced later this month.

Good luck Jack – we are all rooting for you!
