Apprentice of the Month – November 2008

Peter Kennedy

Congratulations go to Peter Kennedy of Tranmere Rovers as the November 2008 Apprentice of the Month.

The young goalkeeper has made tremendous strides in his personal development this year featuring regularly for the Youth and Reserve teams while conceding very few goals and crucially lending a hand in Tranmere’s FA Youth Cup campaign that has so far seen them record away successes at Darlington, Solihull Moors and Northampton Town.

Peter has been commended by the Club for assisting the Clubs long serving goalkeeping player/coach and Centre of Excellence coach John Achterberg, in taking sessions twice a week at the Centre which Peter organises himself.

The teenage shot-stopper also referees at Centre of Excellence fixtures on Sunday mornings as he is a qualified referee and this has proved popular with both players and parents.

Peter Kennedy presented with his prize.

Off the pitch Peter is making steady progress through his academic work and after recently being loaned to Unibond League Club Colwyn Bay FC, he has kept on top of his studies and is on target to achieve the full ASE framework.

Tranmere’s Youth Development Officer, Warwick Rimmer said:

“For experience we loaned Peter to Colwyn Bay for a game. He played well, kept a clean sheet and they won the game. He takes it all in his stride and is so consistent in his behaviour we feel he deserves this award.”
