Kian Murphy, who is a member of our Hendon U10B squad, has been selected to join the Watford FC FA Talent Hub Programme. Since his trial he has also now been selected for the FA Regional Programme. The aim is for Kian, who had a stroke when he was a baby and has a mild form of cerebral palsy, to develop under the England Disability Pathway.

This is a superb achievement for Kian, and everyone at the club is immensely proud of what he has done and special thanks go to Nick and Dave Gordon who have encouraged and supported Kian in mainstream football.

Kian's mum Niamh said: "We are so proud of Kian and cannot thank the club enough for giving his a great start. He has been given every opportunity to progress with his football and it is down to his current coaches, teammates, and all the football camps he has attended that have helped him get to where he is today."
