Blades support Westfield School

15 July 2015

Blades development squad members Callum McFadzean, Jamie McDonagh and Joel Coustrain recently paid a visit to Westfield School to support their Achievement Evening.

This popular event has become one of the key moments on the school calendar with a number of performances from students taking place throughout the evening.

McFadzean is a former pupil of the school and with Jamie and Joel the trio were there to present the coveted Sports Team of the Year Award. The Sheffield United sponsored accolade was presented to the Boys' Year 8 football team.

The Year 8s had continued their success of last year winning the Sheffield League and the South Yorkshire Cup as well as being North of England Futsal Champions.

McFadzean said: "I was very happy to return to my old school and give something back. I did not find the academic side of school easy and the evening shows what hard work can achieve no matter what your talent. It was great to see so many pupils being rewarded."

United has a strong partnership with the school and the celebratory evening is just one of the ways in which the Club support the school.

Dave Millns, of Westfield School, added: "Once again Sheffield United have supported a very special evening at Westfield. Year on year they bring special guests in to present our Sports Team of the Year.

"Ironically the award this year was presented to a football team who were thrilled to be presented by footballers.

"We can't thank the Club enough for their continued support for this event but furthermore for all the opportunities they provide our students.

"We hope our strong relationship continues to grow and look forward to many more years working together."
