Manvir Singh and Mekai Mody have been a part of the Northern Lions Elite Training Program for a couple years. They developed their technical skills and confidence in competing against intermediate – advanced level players. Last year, NLFC hosted a Summer I.D. Camp led by Tommy Taylor (former West Ham United Player, former captain of the England Youth National Team). Both Manvir Singh and Mekai Mody participate in the soccer camp.
Tommy Taylor was impressed with Manvir Singh and Mekai Mody’s skill level and invited them to attend trials with League 1 side Peterborough United FC’s U12 Academy team in England. The players were invited to a week trial from August 27th, 2018 to August 31st, 2018.
