Leeds United’s Kalvin Phillips nets proud message from former school after England debut

Farnley Academy have sent a proud message to Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips following his England debut against Denmark this evening.

Phillips, aged 24, attended Farnley Academy as a boy – and his former school were quick to tweet their congratulations after he was named in the starting lineup for the Nations League.

The Leeds United star was replaced by Jack Grealish after 76 minutes in a 0-0 draw, but that didn’t stop proud Farnley Academy turning to social media to Tweet:

Phillips learned his trade as a youngster at Wortley FC between 2003 and 2010.

Phillips last year played a part in helping Wortley FC secure planning permission for new pitches on the former Wortley High School playing fields, off Blue Hill Lane.

As reported by WLD, in a letter supporting the planning application, 24-year-old Phillips thanked the club for its support as a young player and said it was ‘good to hear’ about the plans.

Wortley FC also tweeted their pride at local lad Phillips’ international debut:

It won’t be long until the midfielder is back in action again, with Leeds kicking off their return to the Premier League by taking on Liverpool at Anfield.
