Hull City player and ex-Malet Lambert student Josh Tymon came by to the secondary school to answer questions about his time at school and playing professional football. Tymon is the youngest Hull City player in 20 years, at the age of 16.
Did you always want to be a footballer?
Yeah, ever since I was little. It’s what I was good at and what I always wanted to ever do.
What do you like to do apart from play football?
I used to be, when I came here, good at English; I’ve always liked journalism and other sides of sport, the media.
What has been the highlight of your career so far?
Probably making my debut or playing against Arsenal a couple of weeks after. When you see it on TV and are actually playing it it’s a lot different and a lot more exciting.
How does it feel to be the youngest Hull City player in the last 20 years?
I’ve obviously not taken it all in yet. It’s still a dream really. So all I’ve achieved so far is amazing. I’d say anything is possible at the end of the day. If you’ve got something you want to do I’d say keep at it, like I’ve shown it does come true.
Do you see yourself continuing football in the future and if so do you see yourself staying with Hull City?
At the moment I do see myself playing for Hull because what they’ve done for me. Hopefully football carries on.
Having a former pupil who has done so well inspires both students and staff . Malet Lambert thanks him for attending and wishes Josh Tymon the very best for a successful career.
