Jason Dodd, Head of Football at Winchester College and former Southampton Football Club player commented: “Joseph has a fantastic attitude and has pushed himself in every aspect of his training and will not leave anything on the pitch. He has improved considerably over the last few years and it has been down to self-discipline and exceptionally hard work.”

With the support of our dedicated team of sports coaches as well as his Housemaster, Mr Liam Taylor, we have seen him develop into a player of national ability.
