We are delighted announce the arrival of Dean Maggs to our Fall 2023 Men’s Soccer programme. 16 year old Dean is the current goalkeeper at the Cardinal Newman College in Preston, Lancs. He comes to us with an excellent track record of playing soccer at professional club academy level. He began at an early age attending the Preston North End (English Championship) Development Centre and after being selected to join the club’s junior academy, he opted to join near neighbours Blackburn Rovers ATG (Advanced Training Group). Having spent several years at Blackburn, he eventually mopved onto join the AFC Fylde soccer academy, where he remained for two years before moving onto Cardinal Newman College to complete his education.
Standing over 6’1″ tall, Dean presents an imposing figure in an around his 18 yard box. His is an excellent shot stopper and dispite his young age, a very astute decision maker. He is a keeper that instills confidence in his fellow defenders.
It has long been an ambition of Dean’s to gain a US College scholarship, so that he can continue his education and develop his game on the other side of the Atlantic. As he is a first class academic student and an excellent keeper, we have no doubt that Dean will be in demand from US College Coaches in Fall 2023.
