Aston Villa Show Interest In Forde

Wednesday January 3rd 2007
Ballingarrys under 13 player Anthony Forde returned home from his second trial with English Premiership club Aston Villa last weekend (Sunday December 31st 2006) having impressed to the point that he will now be travelling to the Birmingham club every two weeks for expert coaching and to play games. He is the second player from the club to attract interest from across the water following Eoin Kennedy who went on trial at Nottingham Forest in the mid 90s. While Kennedy returned home without securing a contract, Forde seems to be making better progress with hopefully a career to follow.
