CedarBridge Academy held a Special Assembly this morning [Feb 20] to wish Nahki Wells good luck this Sunday [Feb 24] in the the Capital One Cup Final.

The 22-year-old footballer is a former CedarBridge student, and the students and staff were beaming with excitement as they wished their former student well as he prepares to play at one of the world’s most prestigious venues.

Dean Minors, CedarBridge’s Director of Athletics, spoke with Wells last night and the call was recorded and played during today’s Assembly, and video highlights of Wells’ career were also shown.

The video presentation was put together by CedarBridge student Jessica Darrell, and showed some highlights of Wells’ career including his first Bradford City hattrick.

The YouTube clip of Bradford fans singing the “Nahki Wells song” in a UK pub was also played, and appeared to cause some amusement among the students.

Wells family was also in attendance, including his grandparents, mother and his younger brother Rico — who is also a talented football player.

Wells — with 18 goals so far this season — is the leading scorer for Bradford City and one of the top scorers in all of League Two. He and Bradford City will be facing Swansea in the Capital One Cup Final on Sunday at Wembley.

Bradford beat three Premier League teams on their way to the final. After taking out Wigan and Arsenal via penalty kicks, they outplayed Aston Villa to advance to the final.
