BSS Hong Kong player joins West Ham
Thursday, 16 October 2008
Brazilian Soccer Schools (BSS) players Dylan and Taylor Tombides travelled to the UK over the summer and had extended trials with West Ham United under the watchful eye of dad Jimmy. Dylan Tombides

After completing an initial test period Dylan was asked to stay on for another month and train with the Under 18’s squad.  

On completion of this we have just heard that Dylan has been accepted into their academy system and will make a permanent move to the UK to live, go to school and train at West Ham’s facility.
His brother Taylor will also join him and hopes to be part of the Academy system. Jimmy chose West Ham as they have a very good Youth Academy and he will stay with the boys while they pursue their dream.

Dylan and Taylor joined BSS Hong Kong from Australia a year ago and played for BSS Hong Kong Under 12’s and Under 14’s respectively.

Head of BSS Hong Kong, Paul Smith, said: "We're delighted for Dylan, Taylor and their father Jimmy.

"It's always crucial for youngsters with great potential to have a strong figure behind them, and both Dylan and Taylor have that in Jimmy.

"If you look at sport stars such as Tiger Woods, Theo Walcott, Lewis Hamilton; they all had a strong father figure who was present throughout their rise in their respective fields.

"Dylan and Taylor are both fantastic young footballers, and West Ham were the best choice as they have firm foundations to bring through young players."

They are both very talented footballers, we wish them all the best and we hope to see them when they return to Hong Kong for their holidays.
