Talented footballer selected by Bournemouth's Premier League club

5 July, 2017

Last year we covered Kings Bournemouth football team's winning match against Sherborne School, helped by an impressive performance from GCSE student Daniel Goodarzi.

Daniel, from Iran, has since had the opportunity to develop under Bournemouth's Premier League football club, as Hannah Farmer reports.

Daniel trialled for AFC Bournemouth in October 2016 and was accepted into their football academy following the exceptional first impression he made on the club.

He is in the starting line up and has scored in most games he has played in, training twice a week and playing matches at the weekend.

The football club supports Daniel in his skill development, tactical decision making, strength and conditioning, and nutrition and rest — ensuring he manages to keep up with his studies as well as his football!
