Magic Academy seeks host family

The Manchester Magic Academy is seeking a host family to provide accommodation for a 16-year-old male player from late August 2022.

This is a wonderful opportunity to provide a home away from home for a talented individual looking to fulfil their sporting and academic dreams.
