Following his recent successful trial period at Athletico Madrid, 13 year old Croy goalkeeper Joshua Reid was invited to Liverpool for coaching with the Premiership Club.
The complete Reid family, Mum, Dad, brother and sister spent five days at Liverpool’s expense in a luxury hotel while Joshua trained at the Liverpool Academy. A Mercedes car transported the family when required.
On the Sunday Joshua played for the Liverpool Under-14 team against Manchester United at Manchester. Joshua played well and kept a clean sheet while on the pitch. When substituted to give the other goalkeeper part of the game, Liverpool lost a goal and the match.
So impressed were the Merseyside team that Joshua and his family have been invited back to Liverpool for a week in February and two weeks in April. Joshua has also been asked back to Madrid next year.
Joshua meanwhile continues to play for the Hamilton Accies Under-14 team.
To relax Joshua turns out for a school team as centre half and scores goals from that position.
