a drone drop > dribble test > tyres > mini goals > balance board > triple targets > 20 touch challenge > goal targets > dribble turn test > moving targets > finishing off with a sprint to the finish with a diving header!

   

Will lifted the trophy and also won premier league tickets for a match of his choice;
Liverpool v Arsenal game!
