Hessle Sporting Comets FundraisingJanuary 18, 2017
Left Winger Jak started playing with Hessle Sporting Club when he was just 4 years old. Our current development centre
has over 60 children starting from this age.
He then joined the Hessle Sporting Lions, entering the league at Under 7's. A fantastic team being unstoppable in their first season and being in the top two teams constantly ever since.
The team over the next few years produced 3 players who are still now playing with Hull City Academy
Over the years the team won over 30 tournaments locally and many as far a field as Barnsley and Doncaster. The team enjoyed competing in Butlins foootball festivals and a trip to St George's Park. The Lions team pride themselves on producing great players whilst still enjoying the game and creating best friends for life on and of the pitch.
Jak's time at Hessle Sporting Club enabled him to be scouted by Leeds and Hull City and trained at their development centres from the age of 8.
Jak then went up to the shadow squad at Leeds for a year at the age of 10.
Jak was then selected to play for East Riding in 2015. Playing in defence and was Captain of the side also winning runner up in the managers player of the year. Playing at the King Power Stadium and winning the West Yorkshire a year never to be repeated.
As if the year for the Lions and East Riding couldn't get any better Jak was scouted by Scunthorpe and Leeds to go on trial.
Jak was offered a contract for both and is currently enjoying his first season with Leeds United FC playing the likes of Everton and Liverpool FC.
It shows with hard work and commitment what is possible and Jak's time at Hessle Sporting Club has been amazing, fun and priceless.
Jak now joins the ranks of many other youths who have started life at Hessle Sporting and progressed to playing at professional clubs.
We wish you all the best Jak! Good luck with your journey.
