Promising Lutton teenager Lee Woolmore has secured a dream four-year scholarship in America.

The 18-year-old, who played for Swaffham last season, will jet off to play for Bellevue College in Nebraska.

Having played for his village side Lutton up until he was 14, Woolmore moved on to King’s Lynn’s junior side and has captained Norfolk in the past.

He also earned trials with Premier Division outfit Norwich City and Championship side Watford before being awarded his dream ticket to the USA.

Woolmore now hopes to impress over the Atlantic and is aiming to earn himself a contract in Major League Soccer.
