Community Trust Product Makes First Team Debut
Ex Community Trust participant Billy Mitchell made a big step into his professional football career by making his first team debut at the last game of the 2018/19 season at Wigan FC
The Bexley resident was first spotted on a community trust football course at the age of 10 before moving on to the player development centre and then on to Millwall football academy.
MCT acting CEO, Sean Daly who first scouted and then coached Billy as a youngster had this to say on Billy’s debut:
“We knew Billy was talented when we saw him as a 10 year old. It’s been really satisfying watching him grow and mature from the community trust programmes, into Millwall FC academy and now into the first team, it is well deserved Billy has worked hard to develop his game, and always willing to learn”
Billy now joins Danny Mcnamara as a professional to come through community trust football programmes to 1st team football at Millwall FC.
