MILLERS legend Ronnie Moore has joined the coaching team at Maltby Academy.
The school’s football scholarship — offered in conjunction with Sheffield FC — aims to give 16 to 18-year-olds a realistic pathway into semi-professional or professional football while studying.
All players on the scholarship programme undertake A-levels or BTec Level 3 in sport during the course, acquiring work-based qualifications such as the FA Level 1 coaching badge.
Ronnie said: “I can honestly say that my first week at Maltby Academy has been an absolute pleasure.
“I am working alongside first-class coach Matt Higgins, and the scholars have listened and given their all in every session.
“I can’t wait to start again on Monday.”
Matt, head of Sheffield FC Football Academy, added: “I’m delighted to have Ronnie join our coaching staff.
“His experience and knowledge will be invaluable to our young scholars and they will learn so much and develop their game from working with him.”
Maltby Academy is actively scouting for scholars to join the programme in September 2021.
