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.’’
