Josh strikes a place on Middlesbrough FC’s First Team!

Fantastic news for Josh Coburn, former student, who has been given the opportunity to be part of Middlesbrough FC’s First Team! Josh had been playing with the Under 23s, but last week he was asked to train with the First Team. It was then announced that he would be training with the First Team for the rest of the season and is now on the MFC website as a first team striker. This is amazing news for Josh who started with the club’s Academy in September 2019. The progress he is making is most impressive and reflects the high standard of his game and his great teamwork. Josh was honoured to be on the bench on Saturday when Middlesbrough beat Stoke 3:0.

Craig Liddle, Academy Manager, said: “Josh has worked extremely hard during his time as an apprentice and now as a young professional. We are all very proud of his development since he has been at the football club and to be in the match day squad at such a young age is a fantastic achievement and well deserved. It’s another step in the right direction and with Josh’s attitude and application I’m extremely hopeful that he will continue to progress and have a bright future at the football club.”

Congratulations Josh, we are so proud of you!
