Chesterton’s Lewis Moore has secured a scholarship in America.

The Bicester School pupil will join Catawba College after the team, based in Salisbury, North Carolina, were impressed with video footage.

Moore will combine his college studies alongside playing football and training full-time for four years.

“It’s great to have finally arrived in North Carolina and be playing,” he said.

“The squad consists of 30 players, half of them from Europe, with the others from the US.

“It’s exciting to be playing with top student players from so many counties and states.”
