The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

From the very little I've seen of this kid he looks special. If he keeps working hard and everything goes well then he'll be the new #10 starting in 4 years for the 2018 qualifiers

Hope that he does not go to Tottenham Academy. Utter rubbish going on in that academy, he need to go where skillful and creative players are appreciated.

Another Terry Fenwick product.

Under Terry Fenwick Jabloteh had some of the best youths in the country who today play for top teams in the league like W Connection for example...

honestly Terry Fenwick had very little to do with the jabloteh youth academy when most of the now u23's and u 20's played with them it was actually Angus Eve and Nigel Grosvenor and others who were the main youth coaches, just saying.

Thanks Trini_2018 and Chinee Boi.  The one chinee boi posted is the one I remember.  I hope he is successful in his trials.  Lord knows we could use some good news around these parts....

I wish him best of luck, he seemed to have had a growth spurt. He's two footed as every modern footballer should be, taking free kicks and dribbling.

So he never played for a team and get a European tryout, well done. Only individual training, not play with any team and get a top try-out, why his father not coaching a Youth National Team?

I can understand this comment. Whatever natural ability you are born with, it can only be enhanced by continual practice. Playing with other kids in the streets develops certain skills, but can also develop bad habits. Youth football coaches are usually only concerned with results, not development. By spending countless hours with a parent or adult just practicing passing, ball control, shooting. heading gives the player a much more assured skill base. And guess what...it also tightens the bond between father and son.

When my son was signed by Gillingham at 5 years old, it was because of his technical ability compared to others his age. Unfortunately, he never had a real gift that would take him further. From the moment he walked, we played football. He loved it and we had great times together. So, he never made it as a player, but we're real close...and thats a far greater reward.

Youth development has to start at age 5. It shouldn't be work...it should be fun. Those with a natural ability will be keen to develop their skills. It has to start with the parents.
