Stoke City opportunity highlights academy strength

YOUNG Stratford Town midfielder Devonn O’Sullivan has secured a trial with Championship side Stoke City – and according to club chairman Jed McCrory, that just shows the quality of the Bards’ academy set-up.

O’Sullivan played a handful of pre-season games and has been on the fringe of the first team, coming off the bench to score in the Boxing Day derby with Leamington. He has also figured regularly while out on loan at Rugby Town who play at the level below the Bards.

McCrory said: “At Stratford we have a very young side and we are keen to develop the players coming through the academy. I spotted Devonn during the summer and brought him in to train with the first team and we also have a young goalkeeper Maxx Clutterbuck who has also been involved on the bench.
