Harrow Times: Will Wambeek Will Wambeek

A young footballer moved a step closer to becoming professional as part of a national competition.

Will Wambeek, 18, of Drummond Drive, Stanmore, is one of 88 players who made it to the semi-finals of Samsung’s nationwide Win A Pro Contract competition.

The competition, which attracted 5,700 entrants from across the country, will see one lucky young footballer win a professional contract with Leyton Orient, Swindon Town or Wycombe Wanderers.

Mr Wambeek said: “To get through to the Samsung Win A Pro Contract semi-finals is unbelievable, and I feel very proud.

“My friends and family have been so supportive, always giving me confidence and have supported me throughout. They all know it’s my dream to play professional football.

“It is only just starting to sink in just how close I am to a pro contact. I am going to give it my all and hope my dream comes true.”
