Congratulations to Tommy O'Sullivan

Tommy O'SullivanEx-Cardinal Newman Catholic Comprehensive School pupil Tommy O’Sullivan has today been offered a professional contract with Cardiff City FC.

A member of Cardiff City youth teams since the age of 12, Tommy left Cardinal Newman School in 2011 after achieving 11 GCSE’s (including 6 A or A*) to prove he had the same determination in the classroom as he shows on the pitch.

A Welsh International at U19 level, Tommy has already broken into the Cardiff City senior team this season to make appearances in both the FA Cup and League Cup.

Everyone at Cardinal Newman Catholic Comprehensive School would like to congratulate Tommy on his achievements so far and his new professional contract. We look forward to following his progress next season as he continues to play for the Development Side and attempts to break into the Premier League squad.
