Former Student Ted Featured on Guardian's Premier League Talent List
Blatchington Mill is delighted to see that Ted Jenks, one of our former students, has been featured on the Guardian’s list of the 20 Best Talents at Premier League Clubs! Ted signed a professional contract at Brighton & Hove Albion back in June and has been incredibly dedicated to his football career, especially over the past year as he has been undergoing rehabilitation for a ruptured ligament.
Ted played against Chelsea’s U18 team at the weekend and is now working hard to get back into the England squad for the UEFA U17 Euros in Ireland next May (Ted has previously captained the England U15 and U16 sides).
The 2018 Guardian 20 Best Talents list features a rising star from each Premier League club born between 1 September 2000 and 31 August 2001, an age band known as first-year scholars. Previous footballers to be included on this list include Marcus Rashford (Manchester United) and Ousmane Dembélé (Barcelona) – so Ted’s in great company!
