The youngsters, Marco Alfonso, Nicolas Kyriacos and Paolo and Leonardo Georgiades will be jetting off to the USA, where they will be able to further their education and at the same time, play football for some of the universities in the USA.

The youngsters have been mentored by former Bidvest Wits and Highlands Park player, Steve Haupt for the past four years.

“At our academy boys can train for a professional career and at the same time study to achieve the academic standards US colleges demand before considering a sportsman for subsidised entry,” Haupt said in a press release.

“We have excellent relationships with senior coaches in the US. Each February we take a team to compete in a prestigious tournament in Las Vegas. They get a chance to show off their skills to the soccer scouts from colleges throughout the States who use this tournament to find talent. Our standard of football is right up with there the other US and international teams,” he added.
