Wrexham player Ryan Andrew has secured a dream move to play college basketball in America next season.

The 18-year-old point guard, who has been in the starting five of Wrexham Basketball's youth teams for several seasons, showcased his talents when he sent 'showreel' footage of himself playing to more than 100 hundred American colleges.

And, after travelling over to Kansas for trials, Andrew impressed and gained a scholarship to study for a psychology and criminal justice degree at South Western College, Kansas.

Alongside his academic endeavours, Andrew will compete for the college team in Division Two of National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Basketball.

The top scorer in the North Wales Basketball Association's youth leagues for the last three seasons, Andrew also collected many MVP trophies and has represented Wales.

Wrexham coach, Rich Holden, said "Ryan's been one the players that others in the league aspire to be like.

"Not only has he got a tremendous work ethic on court he also plays with respect to his fellow players and the officials.

"We've been fortunate as a club that Ryan's parents have supported the travel involved from their home in Welshpool so that Ryan could regularly attend training and fixtures.

"All the family's hard work has paid off, as a club we're delighted for Ryan and his family, wishing him every success as he leaves for the US in August."
