access_time 2 years ago

Young professional Jayden Sweeney was the guest of honour as he visited his primary school recently, the first visit since he left six years ago.

Many of the staff are still teaching at the school, Loyola Preparatory in Buckhurst Hill, and were extremely happy to see their former pupil once again.

Jayden took questions from an organised assembly followed by a classroom visit where he was also happy to talk about the National League Trophy that was taken along for the students to see.

Ollie Morah, Sports Coach and Jayden’s football mentor at the school, said afterwards, “The children at Loyola really enjoyed the Q and A session with former pupil Jayden Sweeney. The children found it really informative and got a good insight into the life of a footballer. He was a well-liked pupil here and worked extremely hard. It’s a pleasure to see him doing so well in his chosen profession”.

=Jayden talked about his love for football and how there is a need to work hard to achieve your goals although he admitted he never made it to be the captain of the school football team. Something he achieved at cricket however!!

“It’s really nice to come back and it’s something I’ve been meaning to do since I left as I only live nearby”, said Jayden. “I’ll definitely pop in again to spend some more time chatting to my old teachers”.

He also has a visit to his former secondary school, Forest in Snaresbrook, to look forward to later in the season!
