Beavers midfield prospect gets dream chance


YOUNG Hampton prospect Joe Wotton is still pinching himself after being invited for trials with La Liga side Real Mallorca.

Joe, 17, who has featured several times this pre-season for Gary McCann’s first team, is heading to the Spanish holiday island to show his worth with Real’s Under-19 squad.

He will be at Mallorca’s base from July 30 to August 9 and goes with the blessing of Gary and Academy Manager Steve Bates, who view it as a great honour for the player and the club.

Midfielder Joe is a student at the HRBFC Academy, based here at the Jezzards Beveree, and has been a stand-out performer for the Under-18 side. He is now on National League forms, too.

Joe, who lives just a mile from the ground, said: “It will be a great experience to sample the different cultures in life and football over there.

“It’s also a very exciting time for Real as they have just been promoted to the top division in La Liga.

“I feel confident of taking on the challenge after a year in the HRBFC Academy and gaining experience with the senior team.”
