Talented teenager to head to Queens University of Charlotte next month

Shenfield Sixth Form student Kieran Gore will head to the USA next month to take up a scholarship at Queens University of Charlotte.

The talented teenager, who also plays for Isthmian League side Thurrock, will combine playing for the university’s ‘Royals’ team alongside his studies for the next four years.

Gore won the scholarship after an impressive display at the PASS4Soccer US Coach Showcase at Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre in December 2016.

“Queens University of Charlotte is a university I have visited numerous times as part of our USA Tour and somewhere that Kieran will excel,” said PASS4Soccer director Daniel Gray.

“Kieran has performed at a high level in the UK and captained Essex to the ESFA U18 Inter-County Trophy at the Ricoh Arena, which will prepare him for the standards in the USA.

“Charlotte is a vibrant city and I am sure Kieran will love his time there as much as current and former PASS4Soccer clients.” Places in the PASS4Soccer Network Program are now available for students seeking to enter a US university soccer programme in August 2018 and 2019 PASS4Soccer will be holding Information and

Assessment Days in the following locations:

August – Nottingham

September - London and Cambridge

October – London, Birmingham and Newcastle

Interested players should register online at or contact PASS4Soccer on 01912295236.
