Junayd showcases his goalkeeping skills to scouts
Recently Juanyd to part in a competition to find an Asian Football Star and won the under 18’s award. He was the only goalkeeper to win in any of the four age categories from U12, U14, U16 and U18. All others were Midfielders. This proves that he stood out from the crowd and showed his skills.
It was a national competition ran by Derby County FC partners to find Asian football talent from around the UK.
The competition involved over 500 players getting through four regional trials to the main final of 32 at Wembley on the 8th November. Judges included a Nike UK Football Freestyle Champion Abbas Farid, Arsenal Scout Tony Day and more scouts.
From Junayd winning the competition it has led interest from Leicester City FC Head of Academy Recruitment Bill Wall, and conversations with Tradenext to ask him for a trial with them.
If you set a goal and work hard to achieve your goals anything is possible.
Well done to Junayd and keep up to good work.
