Premier League chance for Tonbridge Angels youth

by Andy Tong | 6th September 2018

Tonbridge Angels’ Academy captain Josh Stirman was invited to attend a trial at Premier League side Leicester City last month.

The 17-year-old winger, who is currently on loan at Hythe Town, was then offered an eight-week session at the Foxes.

He played for the former champions' Under-19 team against Mansfield reserves, in a side featuring eight first-team players, and went straight into their Under-18s squad to take on Swansea City.

He tweeted: "Hardest thing leaving the family and all my mates behind to start my trial will miss al of you a lot but thank you to everyone for all the messages means a lot.
