A YOUNG booter from Davao City emerged one of the four winners in the Manchester United Soccer Schools-Southeast Asia (MUSS-SEA) Skills Challenge held at the British School of Manila from May 23 to 27.
Thirteen-year-old Jonathan Ryan Siang Lim of the Ateneo de Davao University (AdDU) came out on top to earn the right to represent the Philippines in the MUSS skills finals slated this month in Singapore.
The MUSS-SEA Philippines course was joined by 98 boy and girl footballers from all over the country and Southeast Asia, who are now part of the Manchester United family.
The winner in the Singapore challenge will earn a rare all-expense paid trip to Old Trafford, Manchester, England, home of the European champion Manchester United Football Club.
Aside from the Singapore stint, Lim is also set to compete in a series of tournaments this year in Europe like the Barcelona Cup and Costa Blanca Cup in Spain and the Gothia World Youth Cup in Sweden in July.
Lim was invited by the Makati Football Club to compete in the tournaments because of his soccer skills.
