Create Your Legacy 11

Barnet’s Jamal Hackett and Huddersfield Town’s Joe Wright have been awarded the Create Your Legacy delegate incentive prizes.

Last month’s careers event, held at St George’s Park in Burton-upon-Trent, saw close to one thousand footballers and other elite athletes learn more about alternative career pathways and the importance of having a ‘Plan B’.

Hackett and Wright were nominated by the event’s sixty exhibitors as the most engaging delegates and will now receive a £100 Amazon Voucher.

“I’m glad to win the prize but more importantly I’ve got a better understanding of what I can turn to if football doesn’t work out for me,” Hackett told LFE.

Huddersfield defender Wright was also grateful for the news. He said “It’s a surprise with so many others getting involved on the day.”

“Hearing stories from Matt Holland and Dougie Freedman had a big impact because it’s easy to put off thinking about anything other than playing professionally but as they told us, it would be stupid not to prepare for the future.”
