An aspiring footballer is refusing to give up the dream as he begins an exciting new journey in America.
Former Alec Hunter pupil Ed Foy is now in pre-season training after signing a two-year football scholarship to attend Feather River College in California.
Ed, 19, of Bulford Mill Lane, Cressing, will be studying business, as well as playing football for the college.
He secured the scholarship after impressing during a match for Brightlingsea-based Colne Football College and again after being invited to take part in an assessment in Hertfordshire.
Ed, who plays as a winger, formerly played from Braintree Town.
