Joseph joins fellow U18 team mates Joe Gelhardt, Jensen Weir and Thelo Aasgaard on the international scene.

Head of Academy Gregor Rioch said:

“It’s another very proud day for the Academy and the club. To have another exciting young talent receive international recognition is testament to his hard work.

“Kyle has been with us for four years and he’s had a promising start to the season with six goals so far for the Under 18s in his first year as an apprentice.

“He joins Joe Gelhardt, Jensen Weir and Thelo Aasgaard in being a youth international and collectively they have helped to add extra determination to the group, with their team mates determined to succeed.”
