We are delighted to announce that Bridgewater Prep VI pupil Alfie, has been shortlisted by ISA Sport for their prestigious ‘Athlete of the Term’ award.
Alfie is such a unique and phenomenal talent, with an outstanding range of skills and attributes across a range of sports.
Alfie is an exceptional athlete, with a rare combination of speed and endurance, enabling him to set school records in sprinting and cross country.
Alfie is a former ISA winner of the 60m and the winner of the ISA Northern Cross Country Championships. During this term Alfie has set multiple school records and in Virtual Athletic Competitions against other schools has won every event entered. In the current ISA Virtual Athletics Championships Alfie won gold nationally in the 600m and the cricket ball throw. Alfie has produced times and distances that would have also seen him reach ISA National Finals in 80m sprint, 150m throw and the long jump.
However, the real strength of Alfie lies within invasion games, where he is on another level. In his final term at Bridgewater Alfie will leave knowing he was pivotal in securing ISA finals in cricket and the National 5 a side competitions for the first time in the school’s history. He is an inspiration to team mates, with his commitment and determination to do well for himself and his team. Alfie is a role model, a leader, a coach to his peers and has a tactical awareness beyond his years.
Throughout lock down and during the current term, Alfie has combined his studies with his commitments to Manchester City FC, where Alfie has been an Academy player since 2015. He currently captains the Academy team and has maintained his rigorous training programme with his school studies throughout the term.
We are delighted to nominate Alfie for the ISA Athlete of the Term Award, and can see no more fitting way to acknowledge his achievements in sport and for the delightful young man he has become.
We hope our school community can support his nomination and cast a vote for him via Twitter.
