Academy player Pearson earns first international call-up

Academy player Sam Pearson has been included in the Welsh Under-17 team travelling to Hungary for the UEFA qualifying matches next month.

Under-16 winger Pearson has been at the Academy since March 2016 and this is his first international call-up.

The squad will travel on Saturday 7th October ready for competitive fixtures against Hungary, Kosovo and the Netherlands.

The 10-day itinerary includes training sessions, recovery time and – crucially – a detailed education programme, as the majority of players will be taking their GCSEs in the summer.

The Academy staff would like to wish Sam good luck in what will be an excellent experience for his football career.

City players also on standby for travel are Joseph Low, Callum Pearson and Barney Soady.
