US Scholarships Ltd would like to thank all the players that attended the football trial in Auckland on July 10th 2011. Players from all over New Zealand were in attendance, from as far a field as Invercargill, Wellington, Christchurch and Tauranga. Over 30 of New Zealand’s best young players were in attendance including NZ international players.
From the group the US Scholarships Ltd staff has selected the players they feel have the playing and academic credentials to be a part of their 2011/12 programme.
Malcolm McPherson the USS Ltd director says ‘We were delighted with the players that attended the trial and I personally would like to thank them all for making the effort to do so. It would be great for us to invite every player onto the programme but in reality the US college system demands high standards. The players that have been chosen for our 2011/12 programme are a particularly good group. Every player will or has played National Youth League for top Franchises, or played in the recent 17’s FIFA World Cup for NZ. We have started the process for these players now with scholarship offers from US coaches for players already. Our role as a company is to ensure the players now receive the best possible opportunities in the US.’
