ARBON OFF TO UK: Lachlan Paterson, right, who toured last year with the Comets is with Daniel Arbon.

Wanderers' young soccer star Daniel Arbon has been chosen by the Adelaide Comets to join their side in an up and coming international tour to England in late September.

The tour consists of seven games in 14 days against some of the top academies in the UK.

The trip includes matches against Manchester City and Arsenal who boast some of the best players in the land.

Some players are already representing their country at youth international level.

It's a massive opportunity for Daniel to show off his array of talents with scouts everywhere and see what it's like to be a part of a professional outfits in how they prepare, train and live the life of a footballer.

"I'm really excited," Daniel said with a grin.

"I can't wait to meet the lads and get over there.

"I hope I can do well. It's a great opportunity."

As well as playing, Daniel will get to take in two English Premier League matches which will be a fantastic experience in itself.

Steel United's Lachlan Paterson got the same opportunity last year and did well scoring against Doncaster and Premier League academy side Newcastle United and thinks Daniel will excel over there.

"Daniel's got all the attributes to succeed, I've got no doubt he'll do very well," Lachlan said.

Daniel would like to thank the Wanderers Soccer Club, BIS Industries and The Foreshore Watersedge Restaurant for their support.

We wish Daniel all the best on his upcoming tour of England.
