ENGLAND’S under 18 goalkeeper Will Huffer has proved he is also a safe pair of hands in the classroom as he secured ten GCSEs including eight As and Bs.
The teenager, who is part of Leeds United’s under 18 side, enjoyed exam success despite sitting several of his exams while playing in the UEFA European Under-17 Championship in Bulgaria.
“I sat all sciences, French and both English exams over there,” he said.
“There were a couple of times we had to rearrange exams because of matches – and after we beat Spain I had to sit my physics exam the morning after, which was pretty demanding.”
Will is celebrating his GCSE results with an afternoon’s training at Leeds Utd, ahead of a match against Huddersfield on Saturday.
Will currently plays for the Leeds Utd U18 side and makes regular appearances as part of the England U18 squad. He is hoping to be selected to play for the national side against Holland in September.
He achieved his exam success at St Peter’s School in York.
St Peter’s School, founded in 627AD, is one of the oldest schools in the world.
