Quick learner! Teenager celebrates passing driving test by signing for Premier League team day after
Teeneager Luke Matheson has a habit of juggling everyday life with football. After scoring against Man United, he went straight to school, and now, a day after passing his driving test, he's signed for Premier League team Wolves.
Schoolboy footballer Matheson, who plays for boyhood club Rochdale, seems to make a habit of juggling every young boy's dream with every young boy's life.
Back in September, Matheson created headlines when he crashed in a volley against at Manchester United a week shy of his 17th birthday to equalize in Rochdale's EFL Cup tie at Old Trafford.
