Talented sportsman Matthew Bowman, who in addition to captaining Repton 1st XI and representing Scarborough Athletic, is set to train with former Premier League champions Leicester City. He has been invited to join up with the Foxes' academy prior to Christmas.

This comes just a few months after he trained with and played for Wigan Athletic Under-23s. The Club are continuing to keep an eye on his progress.

Matthew says, "It’s a big opportunity at one of the Premier League's top clubs, so I'm really looking forward to the next few days."

The right-sided player has also been catching the eye on the national scene with the Independent Schools FA. He recently turned out for the National Independent Schools Under-18s against Wales Colleges at St.George's Park, scoring one of the goals in a 3-3 draw. Then he made a significant contribution from right wing-back in a 1-1 draw against England Colleges.
