SA National Teams

The three Free State locals were on trial with the Bolton Wanderers International Soccer School (BWISS).

This once-in-a-lifetime chance is part of the ongoing project between Bolton Wanderers and the Free State Tourism Authority (FSTA) managed by Simsport International, whose general manager Rasthoem Simons accompanyed the boys.

Tyrone, Sesing and Moses arrived in England last Thursday, and during their stay they had a couple of training sessions with the Bolton youth coaches and also attended Bolton Wanderers’s 2-0 victory over Wolverhapton Wonderers in the Championship at the Reebok Stadium on Saturday, were they also met Bolton’s first team captain Zat Knight.

The three have already progressed through two scouting rounds of the Bolton Wanderers talent search programme and were selected at the Grand Skills Final in 2012, were they successfully competed against football talents from all over the world.

They now await their reports from Bolton’s youth coaches, which they should receive in a couple of days.

Dave Bailey, head of the Bolton Wanderers FC International Soccer School, says: “The boys over with us from the Free State have shown great attitude and the Bolton Wanderers experience I am sure has enriched them.

“We are looking to a bright future in South Africa and I am sure in the years to come we will see a player get his chance at this level. We will certainly be monitoring the boys’ progress over the coming months.”
