Liverpool FC defender, Trent Alexander Arnold, paid a special visit to his old school, Rainhill High School, in December, to present a personalised signed shirt.
Reds full back, Alexander Arnold, joined Rainhill High aged 12 and visited the Prescot based school to participate in a specially organised assembly before handing over the signed shirt as a thank you to his former teachers and students.After participating in the presentation Alexander Arnold, said: “I had a fantastic six years at Rainhill High School and cannot thank the teachers and staff enough for their support. They really helped me to balance playing football at the Academy whilst making sure I got an excellent education so I would like to personally thank them.”
“To be able to visit the school as a first team player makes me immensely proud and I think that getting a good education is really important in any walk of life so would encourage any of the current students to take school as seriously as possible.”
Rainhill High School Headteacher, John Pout, said: “ It is brilliant to be able to welcome Trent back to the school to meet some of the younger students and to receive a special signed shirt. Trent has an excellent attitude, got excellent GCSE results, is a polite young man and I am delighted that he is doing so well with LFC. We have a fantastic relationship with Liverpool FC which has existed for eight years now and it makes us immensely proud to see Trent and fellow former students Sheyi (Ojo) and Jordon (Ibe) making their debuts for the first team.”
