Luke Matheson what a kid! The 16 year old scored a goal yesterday against Manchester United one of the most storied franchises in all of sports to send the game to PK’s where they later lost. But just because he’s good at soccer doesn’t mean he gets a free ride from school and other 16 year old obligations.
"What were you doing at 16?"

[Source] – The 16-year-old Rochdale defender, who made headline news Wednesday night for scoring against Manchester United to take their Carabao Cup tie to penalties, is back at Trinity C of E School in Hulme, Manchester today.
Because Matheson, who was also Rochdale’s youngest ever debutant before Peter Thomas broke his record, is supposed to be sitting a psychology test on Thursday – just a day after stunning the Red Devils.
Wednesday: Score against Man Utd at Old Trafford.
Thursday: Go into school on your day off to make up for missing class.
