BROOKLYN, NY - The Brooklyn Italians are proud to announce 8 members of our youth teams have been invited to train with the West Ham United Academy in London. The 8 players include Nikita Dushkevich, Damien Lemagnen, Adam Basse, Massimo Reres, Francisco Estrada, Sachin Green, Emmanuel Tamratzi, Danil Netrunenko, and Eydin Lipo.
The players were recognized while at a local camp organized by West Ham, and were invited to the national camp held over two weekends in Georgia and Arizona. Director of Coaching, Domenic Casciato had positive things to say about the invites, "Its great to see our kids being recognized by such a well respected club like West Ham. We can only wish them the best of luck moving forward, and hopefully will see them in the claret and blue in the future."
Casciato added, "We have been lucky enough to build a relationship with West Ham which has allowed our players to be identified by a club that plays in such a respected league, like the Premier League. We were able to see first hand the ideas of their Academy set up, and we believe the opportunity will be fantastic for the players."
We want to congratulate the 8 invitees, and we look forward to see our Italians colors represented in Europe!
