ANB Futbol is pleased to announce that one young Academy player has received an official trial opportunity with ESTAC Troyes. Victor DeGiorgio (2002 born) will travel to the French Ligue 1 club & train with its academy programs for one week (http://www.estac.fr/).
Victor will be leaving Canada at the beginning of June, along with the ANB Futbol U-13 team that is participating in the “Challenge de Champagne” tournament. He will be assessed by the club’s U-14 team technical staff and competing against other players for a position in the group; if successful, further arrangements will be made for him to officially join the club. A club scout identified Victor at last year’s tournament in France and at the annual ANB International ID Camp.
Victor has been a member of ANB Futbol Academy for the past seven years, competing in various age groups starting with the U-8 program.
“Victor is an attacking player, a striker who gives defenders fits. We truly hope he will be able to do the same in France and we look forward to hear good reports of his trial. With his age, we will have to respect FIFA rules on international transfers. We believe this is the first of many steps for Victor! We wish him well,” says Academy Director, Bassam Naim.
ANB Academy’s vision is to become Canada’s leading soccer development organization. Its mission is to identify Canadian soccer talent, and to maximize the potential of players at any level, through professional coaching and training.
