10:00am Saturday 5th October 2013 in News
Hakan Aydin demonstrates why he’s won a place on York City FC development team and has already been keeper in two matches.
The ten-year-old has attended ten sessions with the squad at Harrogate High School under the wing of the West Yorkshire Development Centre.
Hakan, of Westmoreland Street, Skipton, is also goalkeeper for the team at Greatwood School, where he is a pupil, and is goalie in the Skipton LMS under 11 squad.
His stepfather, Ben Osmond, said Hakan’s success was thanks to the school who passed on details about the trials to a number of pupils, including Hakan.
“He attended in Harrogate and then was asked to come back for four more sessions and then for a further six. He’s also played in two matches. He’s handled it all very well.
“Hakan’s chuffed at getting selected and we’re very proud of him. He’s a modest person. I’ve told him not to look too far ahead but to just enjoy every game.
“We’re very grateful to the school who have been very supportive – he’s received a lot of praise.”
