Student signs professional football contract

A South Korean student from the Buckswood School Football Academy has signed a professional contract.

Hyeokjun Lee, completed a successful trial for FK Ventspils, champions of the Latvian Higher League in both 2013 and 2014.

Despite being formed in 1997 the club has enjoyed considerable success including six league titles and six Latvian cups. In 2009 it reached the Group Stages of the UEFA Champions League which was a first for a Latvian team.

“Buckswood has really helped me prepare for this,” said Lee. “Most of the other players are Latvian, but I am having no problems in training or living with my team-mates as we all speak in English.School Football Academy

“Going to an international school has meant that this huge step has been much easier for me to cope with as I am already used to working with peers from different backgrounds and cultures.

“I’d really like to thank Buckswood for making my dream a reality and my coach Daryl Willard has really brought my game on to the point where I have signed a professional three-year contract.”

This is a fantastic achievement and testament to the standard of football academy coaching available.
