Teenager Kieran Dawes leaves Solihull Moors Academy to return to Blues

YOUNGSTER Kieran Dawes has been tipped to have a bright future in the sport after being offered a scholarship at Birmingham City – nine years after letting him go.

The 16-year-old was on the Blues’ books but he was released as an eight-year-old and recruited by Mark Fogarty, academy manager of Solihull Moors.

Despite his young age, Dawes showed plenty of promise with the Moors and played for the club’s reserves.

He kept in touch with the Blues following his release and his progression has earned him a move back to St Andrews where he will be looking to impress and sign professional terms in the near future.

“I have been working really hard to return to Blues and am delighted to have achieved that goal,” said Kieran, who is the first academy player from the Moors to go onto bigger and better things.

“I learnt a lot playing at Solihull Moors and then being part of their Academy.

“My next ambition is to progress towards a professional contract with Birmingham City.”
