A 16-year-old goalkeeper from Mitchells Plain in Cape Town has been granted an opportunity of life as he will be attending a soccer trial in Spain.
However, Igshaan Davids will need R37 500 in order for him to pursue his dream in the Spanish capital of Madrid.
According to reports, Davids received the opportunity through a newly formed football agency called BT Football Recruitment Agency whose aim is to help players with opportunities at clubs in Spain and Slovenia.
In an exclusive interview with Soccer Laduma, the agency indicated that they have partnered up with a football agency based in Madrid to provide players with opportunities at clubs in the second and third divisions.
“We would like to recruit players who we can take to Madrid where they can play against these clubs so that if they perform, they can (secure) contracts,” the agency was quoted as saying.
The agency further indicated that they have received many messages from players from all over Africa asking if the agency can assist them with opportunities to go play abroad but the agency is not in a position to sponsor players as yet.
In the meantime, Davids is scheduled to leave at the beginning of September, to the 12th and will play against teams in the Spanish second division. He will then go straight into the academy to be further developed.
If anyone would like to help Davids fly the South African flag high in Span they may make contact with his aunt Tanya Thomas on 072 243 7729.
