Next up in our ‘Where Are They Now?’ series is defender Jacques Welch.
Jack started his career at then Championship side Bolton Wanderers but unfortunately suffering a broken leg whilst at the Club and had to face a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
Thinking that this injury may put an end to his career, Jack went in search for a place where he could gain qualifications as well as continuing to play his football at a decent standard. This is when he joined the Centre of Development.
Jack got his head down and started on his BTEC courses at the college, all whilst continuing to catch the eye on the field. He gained attention from his performances and earned a contract at Tranmere Rovers before joining Welsh outfit Fflint Town United on loan.
After an impressive spell in North Wales, Runcorn Linnets of the Northern Premier North West League signed Jack on a contract for the 2020/21 season.
Jack is another example of a hard working and talented student here at the Centre of Development who has progressed his education with us, whilst playing Semi-Professional football so he has more than one different career path available to him.
Keep up the hard work, Jack!
