Optional CPD: football star

Billy Simpkins plays for Sheffield Wednesday’s under 15s team, and travelled to Portugal to play in a tournament.

The team were up against other well-known clubs such as Benfica, CD Mafra, Sporting Lisbon and Celta de Vigo.

Although Billy’s team didn’t win, he was inspired by the level of football being played in the tournament and was honoured to have been a part of it.

He has since sustained an injury, meaning he is unable to play football for a year, but says “I will work hard to achieve my dream and I’m determined to prove my worth in this beautiful game”.
