Josh Attends Sri Lanka Camp

The club is pleased to announce that goalkeeper Joshua Bradley-Hurst has been invited to a week-long training camp organised by the Sri Lanka national team.

Josh was born in the Asian country and explained more about the purpose of the camp:-

“It’s a week-long training camp for the national team coaches to have a close look at some new players with an eye on the future. It won’t be a holiday by any means, I’ll be putting in lots of hard work when I’m over there and if all goes well and I impress hopefully I’ll be considered in the national squad for their next games.

“It’s very exciting and it means a lot to me and my family; my mum is Scottish and my dad English and they worked there for a number of years, and both myself and my sister were born there. I spent my first six years in Sri Lanka and a lot of my happiest memories were made there. My parents were getting ready to build their own house from scratch but then out of the blue we had to move to Scotland as my mum’s mum became unwell and we had to look after her.”

The 20-year-old would be aiming to become the first Clyde player to win a full international cap since Harry Hood in 1967:-

“I’ve not been back since but it’s part of my identity and I’ve always had a dream that one day I would play for Sri Lanka. My aim was actually to get a run of games in the Clyde team then contact them and let them know I was eligible but they actually reached out first through the club and invited me to the camp. I don’t know too much about the other players but I’m confident in my own ability and believe I’m good enough to play for them and win caps.”

Goalkeeping Coach James Evans added:-

“I’m absolutely delighted for Josh to receive this call up to the Sri Lanka national squad training camp. He is one of the most dedicated young goalkeepers I have ever coached and it’s a great opportunity which he deserves. I’m sure he will do really well and impress the Sri Lankan coaching staff.”

All at the club would like to wish Josh the very best of luck for the training camp.
