Was Wynton part of hooking this up? I assume he's still got some connections in the club

Setting up academies in China so they can sign a Dutch-American from New Zealand. Lol

No the academies are separate to Trevor's situation but that's the link, someone asked if Wynton still had contacts there - he does.

His YouTube highlights reel showcased him as a CM in some level of college competition I presume.

Seriously doubt this unless he has improved 300% since leaving NZ.  Watched a lot of him here and he was struggling to even make Waitakere academy sides at youth level, and left for ECB.

How many kiwis are signed anywhere at youth level?

The standard of football in NZ is poor, the reality is, really good players probably get caught up in the crap. Given a different environment he may be a different player... having people actually know and understand their role, who have a good touch and know how to find space to receive a pass etc.

Turning 18 in 2 months time, so a little older than 16.

Lets all poke holes...

The fact is for the number of young players we have, very few make a real go of it. And the fact remains, there is a 1000 more sharke players than good ones, so judging the good ones is a little hard to do, effectively, consistantly.

I hope he picks NZ, I hope he turns into a star. End of.

Was subbed after 55mins so maybe picked up an injury?

Seems like he has been in & out of the Werder Bremen U19's. Soccerway says 9 appearances this season in Bundesliga U19 North. 

Bremen have played 22 games to lie 3rd on the table.

6 starts and 3 times as a sub.

No games Nov-Dec 2016, or Jan 2018 (competition winter break was mid Dec to end of Jan)

1 game Feb

2 games March

1 game April (last weekend)

Still a higher level than most of U20 trialists.
