Former Ratcliffe Student Makes his Debut for Liverpool Football Club in the FA Cup

All School News | 14.03.2024

In a remarkable feat, 16 year old Trey Nyoni (OR’ 23) recently made history by becoming Liverpool’s youngest-ever player to play in the FA Cup. Trey’s outstanding performance during the FA Cup tie against Southampton in February contributed to Liverpool’s impressive 3-0 victory.

Trey has not only been able to play at U18 level, but also debuted at U21 level and progressing to the first team within a few months of joining the club. Before accepting a Liverpool Football Club Scholarship this year, Trey spent two years studying at Ratcliffe College on the Leicester City FC Academy Educational Programme.

The Leicester City FC Academy Educational programme provides the foundations for Academy Players to excel both on and off the pitch. Players receive a well-rounded education, as they manage their busy training schedules alongside studying for their GCSEs, here at Ratcliffe College.

Trey’s journey from Ratcliffe to Liverpool FC is a testament to the exceptional opportunities provided by the Colleges’ partnership with Leicester City Football Club.

Head of LCFC Academy Partnership, and Ratcliffe College teacher, Mr Thorpe, commented,

“The Ratcliffe community has been thrilled to see Trey’s recent successes at Liverpool. Trey joined Ratcliffe as a full time LCFC Scholar in September 2021.

Upon joining Ratcliffe, Trey soon became a well thought of member of the College and boarding community, with both students and staff alike. We continue to follow Trey’s successes and wish him all the best.”


We take immense pride in Trey’s footballing achievements, supporting the development of young talents in both academics and sports.
