Ormskirk FC Under 8s Player signs for Bolton Wanderers
We'd like to wish a huge congratulations to Harry Dougherty, one of our Ormskirk FC Under 8s players, who has signed for Bolton Wanderers!
Harry has been with Ormskirk FC since he was 5 years old, when he first attended our Ormskirk FC U6s sessions. Straight away, the coaches could see what a talented a footballer he was, with a keen eye for goal, and he was soon training with one of our older Under 7s teams.
Harry's first match action for us came when he played for a newly formed Ormskirk FC Under 6s team that played in a Summer development league in Prescot.
Harry played for this Ormskirk FC team with his friends as they went into the Under 7s and Under 8s age groups, doing really well and playing up a year each season in the Skem JFL, as well as winning various tournaments.
We're really sorry to lose Harry (and his Dad Marc, who has been helping out with the team), but we are delighted for him and his family that he's got this opportunity. We wish Harry all the best at Bolton, and we look forward to seeing how he progresses there.
