Holbeach’s Dayna Kingshott has been offered a football scholarship in America.

She studies the sports science programme at The College of West Anglia sports campus in King’s Lynn as well as being part of the girls elite football programme.

Dayna has secured a full football scholarship to Owens Junior College, Ohio.

The striker will be wearing the number 10 shirt when pre-season kicks off on August 1.

She is also on track to achieve the highest grade possible of three distinctions for her Extended Diploma in Sports Science.

Dayna will be in strong company with Owens Express Women’s Soccer making the national finals last season, losing to the eventual winners Monroe College.

She will make the move to America on July 25 after completion of her programme at CWA’s sports campus.

Dayna will train seven days a week at Owens Junior College as well as continuing her studies.

She said: “This is a dream come true.

“I have been playing since I was four-years-old and have always wanted to live in America and to achieve this while being able to 
continue playing football is an amazing opportunity which doesn’t seem to be real.”

Dayna becomes the latest success story from CWA’s sports campus making the move to America.

Programme manager for sport at CWA Tommy Goode said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for Dayna and we wish her every success. This opportunity is very 
well deserved.”
