Football: Pro dream closer for Kyan
4:42pm Wednesday 11th December 2013 in Local Sport
Talented footballer Kyan Gulliver is a step closer to winning a dream professional contract with Leyton Orient, Swindon Town or Wycombe Wanderers.
Left-back Kyan, 20, of Nalla Gardens, Chelmsford, is one of 88 players who have progressed to the semi-final stages of Samsung’s nationwide Win A Pro Contract competition, which attracted 5,700 entrants.
Kyan impressed the Football CV scouts at his regional trial at Eltham Goals Soccer Centre.
He said: “My next job is to progress to the final 22.
“Since the regional trial I’ve been training and playing matches to keep me fit and to make sure I don’t lose match practice or any sharpness.
“A lot of it is down to desire, passion and ability and I believe I have all three of these things.”
Kyan will compete in an 11-a-side match at Leyton Orient’s Matchroom Stadium.
