We are thrilled to announce that Soccer Assist clients Louis Blomberg-Smith and Jack Dowling have secured a place and committed to Campbellsville College in Kentucky on a soccer scholarship.
Bloomberg-Smith from Romsey, the former Winchester FC left back and Dowling from Bexley, the former Teviot Rangers JFC Centre midfielder will be joining the Campbellsville Soccer Roster this fall.
Louis and Jack are heading to the top ranked Campbellsville College who have been conference champions in 2 of the past 5 seasons in one of the most difficult conferences in the NAIA.
They will get to experience not only the outstanding sporting facilities that Campbellsville has to offer but pursue their education with all the supporting resources available to student athletes.
This is an incredible opportunity for both of the young footballers to develop themselves as a player and experience the American collegiate lifestyle.
Louis Blomberg-Smith and Jack Dowling signing for Campbellsville
Following the success of their assessments, the boys have impressed us ever since. Soccer Assist James Quinn, a member of our Placement team, had high praise for the pair saying that “Both of these lads come from a strong playing background and are determined to excel in a very competitive program, I am looking forward to following their progress at Campbellsville.”
When asked about the two new signings, Campbellsville Head Coach Adam Preston expressed how much of an asset Louis Bloomberg-Smith will be upon joining the team; “We are excited to be the next step on Louis’s footballing journey. He is a good player that will add international experience, quality on the ball and game intelligence. I can’t wait to be working with him in August.”
Likewise, he shared similar comments when asked about Jack Dowling; “Jack comes highly recommended to us from Soccer Assist and we are excited to see him in action on the field this august.”
We want to wish Louis and Jack all the best during their time at Campbellsville and we look forward to seeing what they can do next.
