Kaiyne makes Football League debut


Soccer Elite FA Scholarship product Kaiyne Woolery made his Football League debut for Notts County on Saturday.



Kaiyne played the full ninety minutes after joining County on loan from Bolton Wanderers last week.


Although the game ended in a disappointing 3-0 defeat at Oldham Athletic, Kaiyne was awarded man of the match by the Notts County website.


The landmark debut wrapped up a superb week for the SEFA Scholarship – one which also saw Aaron Simpson go on trial at Wolves and the announcement of fixtures against Wales Under 18 Schoolboys and Blackburn Rovers.


“We are all incredibly proud of Kaiyne as he takes the next step on his footballing journey” said SEFA director and Scholars coach Tony Browne.


“He has continued to work hard after moving to Bolton in the summer and has impressed in their Under 21s leading to the loan move to Notts County last week.


“Although they didn’t get the result they wanted it was great to see Kaiyne awarded man of the match by the Notts County website and hopefully he can push on from here and grab a few goals.


“Kaiyne joined us an an eleven-year-old after being released by a Football League academy and he took full advantage of the SEFA player pathway, joining our Scholarship aged 16 and then signing a professional deal with Tamworth after completing the Scholarship.


“After a great year at Tamworth in the Conference Premier, Kaiyne signed for Bolton and has continued moving forward with his game up until this point.


“Kaiyne is living proof that players who apply themselves and work hard can reap huge benefits from our Scholarship – and I am certain there are plenty more to follow in his footsteps over the coming years!”
