The George Mortimer Grant 2019 was awarded to Rachel Wolecki.  Rachel is a former Perth Academy pupil and Sports Ambassador.  Rachel was an integral part of her local team Jeanfield Girls, and represented them at age groups, U15s and U17s.  Rachel made an appearance for St Johnstone ladies at the age of 15, the youngest ever to do so.  Michael Rodger PE teacher at Perth Academy quotes 'Rachel as one of the best footballers I have seen at her age'.  Rachel is now studying and training in America, and would like to thank P&KSC for their continuing support through the grants that she has received.
