Davies set for UK return after Australia selection
Former Horton Foxes youth player Cameron Davies will return to England this winter after being selected to tour as part of the Australia under-19s squad.
Eighteen-year-old Davies and his family emigrated to Australia back in 2010.
Since then the talented footballer, who was part of a Northowram Juniors side which was unbeaten in four years and included Bradford City’s Cameron Murray and Leeds United’s Luke Parkin, has gone on to play for Aussie second-tier club the Green Gully Seniors in the VPL league.
He impressed enough to earn selection for his newly- adopted national side’s junior outfit and his father Ray is immensely proud of his son’s achievements.
He said: “This is the highlight of his short career and he is looking forward to hopefully meeting up with friends he left over three years ago.
“He is playing against England Schoolboys in Swansea, Cardiff, Sheffield and two other venues to be confirmed.
“I have had some great times in junior football. However, when his name was announced that he was going to play I was in shock and burst into tears with pride as I know how much hard work he has put in over the last 18 months, training for club and state five times a week and playing games at the weekend.”
Davies is also hoping to impress professional clubs while he plays on the tour.
Ray added: “Cameron is honoured to be selected for his adopted country but would love to represent England.
“Cameron has also been asked by advisors to go back to the UK in August 2014 to trial for professional clubs.”
