A 20-year-old Cookstown footballer has netted his dream career move after being selected to study at a soccer college in America.

Tyler Anderson, a son of Brian and Julie Anderson, is currently enjoying student life at Union College, Kentucky after winning a scholarship through  Global Sports Recruitment, an Edinburgh-based group which specialises in securing  scholarships for student-athletes and helping them fulfil their ambition of playing collegiate soccer at a range of universities across the USA.

Mum Julie said: "This is the chance of a lifetime and Tyler, although only in Kentucky a few months, is thoroughly enjoying the experience.”
