The Founder of Scholarship Connect Andrew Muxworthy has a long history of opening doors to help players turn professional. Prior to forming Scholarship Connect Andrew saw 16 of his Chester le Street Youth Players turn pro across The World. This includes Blackburn Rovers striker Danny Graham who made his Premiership debut for Middlesbrough against Manchester United at Old Trafford; Sheffield United's Chris Basham (seen above left tackling Cristiano Ronaldo) when he played for Bolton Wanderers against Manchester United at Old Trafford; and Sheffield Wednesday's Adam Reach (seen above left for Middlesbrough after scoring against Liverpool at Anfield).
Since forming Scholarship Connect, the success of players turning pro has continued in the USA with 12 players joining professional and semi professional clubs at MLS, NASL, USL, PDL and NPSL level.
