During his visit, Jon Macken offered the boys some tips on how to focus and progress. Afterwards he allowed for a question and answer session to the enjoyment of all.

It was a great opportunity for the student-players to hear first-hand what it is like to be a professional player, and allowed them to understand the commitment, drive, and ambition they need to set them on their way in their own careers.

Thanks, Jon Macken!
