Jefferson makes it 60 for NPLFA

By James Gordon

Widnes’ Matthew Jefferson became the 60th NPL Football Academy student to make his first team debut at the weekend.


Jefferson came off the bench in the win over Pickering Town, becoming the second Widnes student to make their first team bow.

His academy side currently sit top of the Sports Traider Division and are in the NPLFA Cup semi-finals, thanks in part to Jefferson’s performances in the middle of the park.
