Reid confirms Phoenix link
All Whites football captain Winston Reid is to sponsor two scholarships a year to the Phoenix’ Academy, beginning this year.
One is for a full football and residential scholarship at Scots College and the other is for school and football tuition at any of the three schools in the academy programme.
Wellington Phoenix general manager David Dome said when Reid was in New Zealand with West Ham in July last year he expressed an interest in helping promising New Zealand football talent.
‘‘I am very proud of my heritage,’’ Reid said. ‘‘I’ve also been blessed in my career, and this in a small way is my chance to give something back.’’
