Manchester Academy Scores A Winner

Published on 13 February 2017

Manchester United's Ashley Young and Henrikh Mkhitaryan paid a surprise visit to Manchester Academy on Wednesday (8th February).

The visit, arranged as part of the Academy's partnership with the Manchester United Foundation, saw the players take part in Maths, French and English lessons, as well as staging a mini press conference with students. 

The Premier League players then did what they do best, taking part in footballing activities to showcase the Foundation’s 'Street Reds' provision - an evening football programme, held at 12 locations across the city. 

Escorting the special guests were Academy students Mubarik Yusuf (Yr8), Devonie Williams (Yr8), Adam Benaicha (Yr8) and Abdiaziz Dahir (Yr9), supported by Foundation hub worker Luke Ross. Commenting on the experience, Mubarik said: “I was really excited to meet the players and it was an honour to welcome them into our school and show them around. “ 

Henrikh Mkhitaryan commenting on the visit added: “It’s always a pleasure to meet children because we have been kids as well; we are still kids for our parents and have studied at school, so it’s always important to come and support them and help them to find the right way.” 

Manchester Academy Principal Andy Griffin was also thrilled to welcome the players to the school and said: “A special moment for me was the way both Ashley and Henrik interacted with our students. Here at the academy, we have an incredibly diverse community; Henrikh speaks several languages and it was just great to see the children’s engage with the players in a really positive manner. I’m sure it's something our students will remember forever.” 

Mr Griffin was also quick to praise the work of the Manchester United Foundation and said: “The work of the Foundation has a positive impact on the whole community - not just the school - and it’s great that, through our association with the Foundation, we can provide our students with opportunities in sport, healthy lifestyles and leadership.”
