As many supporters will be aware, our talented 16 year old mid-fielder, Kai Brown, has been trialling with Ipswich Town FC either side of Christmas.
The club is now delighted to announce that Kai has secured a move to The Tractor Boys and will continue his football education with them. He has passed his medical and will move to Portman Road with immediate effect.
All at Grays Athletic would like to congratulate Kai and pay tribute to the people who have helped him develop his career. These include our youth coaches, the first team management and of course his supportive family.
Due to Kai’s age the club cannot command a fee, although the discussions regarding future sell-on clauses are ongoing. However, Ipswich Town have confirmed that they will visit Parkside in the summer to play our first team in a pre-season friendly.
We are proud that Kai joins a long list of players that have secured moves to professional clubs from Grays Athletic FC and we wish him the best of luck with his football career going forward.
