Everton chance for ace Coulson

TEENAGE football star Michael Coulson is heading for the Premiership with Everton.

Graham School pupil Coulson, 16, is currently with Boro's centre of excellence but is going to Goodison Park this week for a trial with the Merseyside giants.

His dad Steve, who is also manager of Saturday League side Edgehill, said: "I am absolutely delighted for Michael because he deserves this chance.

"He is a very talented player and also works extremely hard and we are very proud of him."

Steve added: "Michael was spotted while playing for the county team and Everton got in touch and asked him to go for a trial.

"Boro have been fantastic about it and have wished him all the best in the future.

"Michael is an attacking midfield player with lots of strengths to his game and I hope he can fulfill all the ambitions he has."

During his spell with the Toffees, Coulson will feature for Everton's youth academy side against Liverpool on Sunday.
