Football Trials Success For Kyle

Students from colleges across Britain have been attending trails to become part of their men’s and woman’s regional college football squads.

Students throughout the north east took part to become part of their region team including students from East Durham College, City of Sunderland, Huddersfield New College, East Riding College and Redcar & Cleveland to name but a few.

East Durham College is delighted that one of their students, Kyle Morris, has been picked to represent the North East Colleges football team.

Kyle Morris, aged 17, from Hartlepool, plays centre forward and is studying on a BTEC National Diploma in Sport & Exercise Sciences at the College and is part of the College’s highly successful Football Development Centre.

East Durham College student Lewis Edwards, also 17, from Thornley, who plays centre half has been given one of two reserve places on the squad.

Steve Howey, Head of the Football Development Centre at the College, commented: “I’m delighted for the lads, they’re both great footballers.

“These lads are becoming real role models for the other players coming through the Development Centre. Their performances both on the pitch and in the classroom have been second to none.”

Phase 2 of the trail’s are on Wednesday 3rd November. Phase 3 is from 17th - 19th of December at Lilleshall, from which the England College’s squad will be selected.
