Congratulations go to Gerald Mulholland of West Bromwich Albion who has been named as February 2011 Apprentice of the Month.
Gerald has impressed throughout his Apprenticeship, successfully achieving both the NVQ and Coaching qualifications ahead of schedule.
Due to his exceptional commitment to education, Gerald advanced from the National Certificate to the National Diploma and is expected to achieve a triple distinction grade.
On the pitch, Gerald has been labelled as one of the quickest players in the Academy and was called up to the Northern Ireland U17 squad in the first year of his Apprenticeship.
Gerald has expressed an interest for working in the media and has gained valuable experience working voluntarily in the Club’s Media Department conducting interviews and writing match reports for the website. All of this is done in his own time and further showcases Gerald’s commitment to succeed.
West Brom’s Education and Welfare Officer Mike Scott added:
“I’d like to thank LFE for acknowledging Gez’s commitment to the scholarship programme. I am really pleased for him that his hard work has been recognised.”
