A young lad from a small fishing town in Norfolk has hit the big time in the USA signing a professional contract with Major League Soccer team Sporting Kansas City.
Dom Dwyer, 21, attended Springwood High School from 11 years till he was 16, this is where his unique standard of Athletics and Football was first spotted.
While studying at Springwood High Dwyer also played games for Norwich City Academy. After being released from Norwich, Dom signed for Kings Lynn youth and started with a bang with four goals on his debut. Senior team coaches soon realised he was ready for the reserves where he also became top goalscorer in the season he was there. During all this goalscoring he also gave something back to the community helping coaches Paul Hunt and Jess Ibrom coach young school children all over the county.
Dwyer family then moved from Kings Lynn to live in London,this is where alot of young budding footballers would of come unstuck in the busiling over populated City but not Dom, he got straight back into a semi-pro standard with Staines FC in the Blue Square North. After a short spell hitting the back of the net for the Swans he decided to return to his roots with Kings Lynn.
On his return back to The Linnets Dom made 10 appearance scoring 3 goals whilst also making regular starts for the reserves where he was top goalscorer, this led to Dwyer becoming a favorite with the home support.
Dom then decided to leave blighty for the cool shores of the United States to start a scholarship with Tyler Junior College in Texas winning numerous awards both personally and as part of the team and become a real prolific goalscorer in one season he broke the colleges all time scoring record of 35 goals in one season. He also won his place in the Nationals Player of the Year hall of fame, this is no mean feat, this award is compiled of all the players at all the colleges in the U.S.
He then went on to University South Florida showing more beaming football skills by helping the USF get to the last 8 of the National finals. He then went on to break the USF’s scoring records TWICE during his scholarship.
Dwyer has now been signed for Sporting Kansas City through the drafting system used in American Soccer and is due to start the campaign at the beginning of march against DC United. Dwyers really looking forward to starting his MLS career with SKC and looks forward to playing against his idol Theirry Henry who his playing his football for New York Red Bulls in the same conferance as Doms new club.
