Jeremy Walker and Will Abbott will play with Premier League club Kingborough Lions United in the 2011 season.
The Lions were the successful club in the application process for the two National Training Centre players.
Three clubs in all applied for the youngsters.
“After working through three strong expressions of interests and meeting with representatives from all clubs concerned, the panel felt that the Kingborough Lions United Soccer Club offered the best development opportunities to these two young players,” said Football Federation Tasmania CEO John Boulous in a letter to all club presidents.
“The NTC Head Coach, Dean May, will liaise with the club coaches of Kingborough United Soccer Club to finalise the agreement to commence in the New Year.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the clubs that submitted an expression of interest and made themselves available for an interview.
“I would also like to re-iterate that the NTC Football Program Head Coach, Dean May, (Male) and Michael Edwards (Female), and the FFT Technical department staff are available to work closely with all clubs and their coaches to provide any guidance or assistance to ensure the continued development of football within the State.”
