Barwell boss Guy Hadland says it is pleasing to see so many of the club’s players move on to bigger clubs after Max Bramley became the latest to fly the Canaries’ nest.
The 22-year-old former Leicester City keeper is currently on trial with MLS side New York Red Bulls after signing for BetVictor Southern League Central Barwell in October.
“We got a phone call on Sunday from Max saying that he’d been asked to go out to America with New York Red Bulls to trial with them and obviously the club want him to kick on,” Hadland said.
“He’s performed well for us and we’re very pleased with that. He’s enjoying his football again and he’s got that spring back in his step and then out of the blue comes this brilliant chance with New York Red Bulls.
“Barwell might be a small club in terms of the footballing world but that world is so much smaller now with social media and agents.
“He’s going with our blessing. He had the opportunity to go on trial with some league clubs in the summer and it didn’t come to fruition, so we picked him up. He’s out there for a week which could be extended further depending on how he does.”
Bramley joins a growing list of the club’s talent that have got a move – leaving the Barwell boss satisfied that he provides the perfect environment for players to flourish.
“One thing we do at Barwell is unearth some talents. When you look at the likes of Matt Stenson, Jai Rowe and Danny Newton – we blood them well here and make them understand how to win games of football,” he added.
“We’re so pleased for everyone who we move on, and we want to see young lads kick on and develop. We won’t hold anyone back, sometimes we have to encourage them to kick on because they enjoy it so much here.”
