England call-up for Soham and Cambridge United youngster Kai Yearn
Soham-raised Kai Yearn has been selected for the England Under-16 national squad at St George’s Park in mid-April.
The 15-year-old attacking midfielder, who attends Soham Village College, has earned the call-up after a string of impressive performances for Cambridge United's Under-18 squad.
Cambridge's academy manager Tom Pell told the club's website: "We are really proud and pleased for Kai to receive such prestigious recognition following a number of impressive performances so far this season.
“We feel that we have some extremely talent young players across all of our academy age groups and this is great for them all to continue to aspire to play at the highest level.
“We would all like to congratulate Kai for his selection. In what has been a difficult year for all of our boys, he like lots of others has continued to show resilience, discipline and hard work to not only work hard at his game but also to perform really well towards his academic studies.
"We would also like to thank Soham Village College for their support towards Kai’s development this season as well as them granting permission for him to attend the camp at St George’s Park, which I know will be a proud moment for him and his super supportive family.
“He has an awful long way to go but everyone at the club including his teams mates are really proud of him and hope this is another brilliant experience.”
