Dynamic Duo Sign Up

22 December 2017

It's been an exciting week for Hebburn Town Juniors FC.

On Saturday we received a phone call from an excited Tai Ebanks to say he had been offered a professional scholarship with Newcastle.

On Friday we heard that Robbie Gateshill had accepted a professional scholarship offer from Rotherham.

Both lads were playing for HTJ before academy football meant they could no longer play for us. However they had always kept in contact, sometimes coming to watch games to coming to training when they need extra training sessions,

Their old HTJ coach Norman Gray said "These 2 lads were always going to be good footballers, that was plain to see. However, they themselves are a great examples of what happens if you do the 'extra'. They have got the rewards for the hard work they put in themselves. Examples of this are like the time Tai came back early from a family holiday so he could do footy training. Another is the time Rob persuaded his Dad to get up early on holiday so Rob could go running up and down some steps".

Everyone at HTJ is massively proud of the 2 of you...well done.

We are sure both sets of parents will keep us well informed on how the lads are doing.
