Grade 4 student shows football savvy

It is nearly every young boy's dream to come running out of the tunnel to the cheers of the crowd and to play for a well-known football team at Wembley, or to touch the turf on another hallowed ground. For Grade 4 Prem student Kang Min, that dream got one small step closer.

Kang Min is an aspiring young football player with a lot of potential. His spare time is filled with dribbling and passing but for Kang Min football is more than just a way to pass break time. Jamie Clarke, the Traidhos Three-Generation Football Academy coach, spotted Kang’s early aptitude for the game and put him and his family in contact with the Nottingham Forest and Sunderland football teams in England. 

As anyone who follows English soccer knows, these are established teams and have the potential to grow the dream for serious young footballers.

Kang Min flew to the UK over the April Songkran holidays to spend three weeks learning new drills and playing matches. He was the only guest player invited to train and play with the team. Kang Min commented, "I was very nervous, but very excited to go to England." His lasting memory was "The other guys were very nice. I'll never forget getting a chance to play with them.”

He enjoyed his time in England and looks forward to being able to visit again in the future – the dream of lifting the cup with a professional team still burning in his head.
