Tennessee Named First XI School Football Captain
King’s College footballer Tennessee Harlow has enjoyed a successful two weeks, during which he has helped his local football club to pull off a shock result and has been named as captain of the school’s 1st XI.
In the FA Under 18 Youth Cup last week, Tennessee travelled with the rest of his Wellington Town FC teammates to play against the much-fancied Paulton Rovers, who play in a division above them.
Tennessee is an all-round sportsman. He is an opening batsman who plays his club cricket for Taunton Deane and has also played up through the Somerset age group teams, this year appearing for the Under 17s.
Commenting on this recent success, Tennessee said: “We were the underdogs, so to come out the winners against a strong Paulton Rovers side was a great achievement for the team. I love my football and enjoy playing for King’s and for Wellington – which is my local club - where I have played since I joined their Under 8 side. Being named as school first XI captain is a real honour. This year we have got quite a young team as we lost a number of older players so it’s going to be quite exciting”.
He added: “We have got some really good coaches at King’s and in addition to working with Mr Heayns, who has been a great help to me over the years, I am involved with football training three or four times a week working with coaches from Exeter City.”
Chris Heayns, Director of Football at King’s Schools said: “Tennessee is a real enthusiast and has worked hard at his game over the years. He deserves to be namedcaptain of the first XI.”
