Seventeen year old St. Lucian national Zaine Pierre, one of W Connection’s youngest senior team players left on Wednesday 8th September headed for Gatwick International Airport en route to Stoke City FC where he hopes to impress and secure a permanent dream move to the Premiership League.
The young starlet was offered a ten day trial by the English Premiership team Stoke City Football Club on the heels of fellow teammate Shahdon Winchester’s trial to Celtics FC of the Scottish Premier League.
Stoke City is also home to former W Connection Player Kenwyne Jones who made the move from Sunderland FC less than two months ago.
Zane was recruited in January during the 2010 pre-season period by W Connection’s Technical Director, and fellow countryman Coach Stuart Charles Fevrier.
He has represented St. Lucia both nationally and regionally at the youth level and has been a prolific striker for his Alma mater Vieux Fort Comprehensive in the Secondary School’s League where he took home both the Most Goals and Most Valuable Player awards three years in a row.
Zane has also been recognized at St. Lucia’s National Awards having received the Junior Footballer of the year in 2009 and 2010. For Additional Information, contact the Marketing and Media Department at W Connection Club offices.
