Year 1 Rashford Class 

Miss Birch 

Marcus Rashford MBE (born 31 October 1997) is an English professional footballer who plays as a forward for Premier League club Manchester United and the England national team. A Manchester United player from the age of seven, he scored on his England debut in May 2016, becoming the youngest English player to score in his first senior international match. 

He is also a campaigner against racismhomelessness and child hunger in the United Kingdom. For his efforts, he has received widespread praise, and has been recognised for his efforts from organisations both in and outside of sport.

We are proud to be named after such an inspirational man who has helped many people in need.
