10 year old Jackson Best competes in Yannick Bolasie’s 30 second skill challenge on Instagram and won!

Name: Jackson Best 
Age: 10 
Favourite football team: Manchester United 
He joined the Instagram live of professional footballer Yannick Bolasie’s 30 second skills challenge this week and he won! He has won a pair of exclusive football boots from BW Boots UK.
Jackson’s passion has always been football, from a very young age. He has always trained and is constantly trying to improve by teaching himself new skills and tricks, this is the norm for him. However, since lockdown began, he has upped his training, always in the back garden, rain or shine, practicing for hours (sorry neighbours!). Having to stay indoors has opened up a world of opportunity for him through online sessions, access to players and coaches from across the world and getting creative with his football. His fitness and ball mastery skills have improved massively because of the hours he pours into it daily.

“I was a little nervous when I first joined the Instagram live, but once I got into it, the nerves went away. I was so excited to get the opportunity to show what I can do and to be able to actually speak to a professional footballer and get encouraged by him was amazing.”
