The defender’s assured performances in the World Cup have created much excitement at the Derbyshire high school where he is remembered as a fine all-round sportsman
St Mary’s Catholic high school in Chesterfield has been one pupil and one teaching assistant down at various points over the past three weeks. Neither has a sick note but there will be no fine from the local education authority when they return. After all, it’s rare you get the opportunity to watch your brother or best friend play in a World Cup.
Harry Maguire’s 17-year-old sister Daisy, who is studying for her AS levels, and his best friend Danny Russell, a teaching assistant at the school, have been given permission to go away in term time. Together with a large cohort of Maguire’s friends and family they have travelled to Russia and from Volgograd, Nizhny Novgorod, Kaliningrad and Moscow have watched England’s march to the quarter-finals. Back in Derbyshire, Maguire’s former teachers are bursting with pride and an eagerness to share memories of a likable boy who excelled at sport. But they never imagined that less than a decade after leaving he would be playing for a spot in a World Cup semi-final.
