As part of the Heriot’s Academy system we are proud to announce the launch of a scholarship programme which will see a young player, selected from our Academy, spend time in Australia playing for Canberra Wests. This year’s recipient is young hooker Ali Johnston.
Former Academy Coach, Jamie Parker, who is handing the reigns over to Alex Haggart, said: “Ali has shown significant commitment and dedication to the academy programme and this is a great way to reward his hard work.”
Ali will be keeping us updated on his Oz experience and hopefully his selfies will improve.
We are looking for a sponsor for both our Academy and the Scholarship programme. Please get in touch with Iain Milne (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in helping nurture the next generation of Goldenacre superstars!
