Drew enters Samsung competition after 800 goals in football
Barnstaple FC striker Steve Drew is confident of winning a professional football contract, having scored over 800 goals in 20 years of playing football.
The North Devon Gazette Football League player from Yarnscombe has entered Samsung’s ‘Win a Pro Contract’ competition in the hope of being signed by Leyton Orient, Swindon Town or Wycombe Wanderers.
31-year-old Drew said: “I started to keep track of my goals right from when I started playing as a kid and I have done it ever since. I’ve lost track in recent seasons, but it’s over 800.
“Of course these days I am playing at a lower level but I have played at Exeter City and also Yeovil Town.
“I really do think I have what it takes to ‘Win A Pro Contract’.”
Registration, which can be done through Facebook, closes on September 16, after which hopefuls will be tested at regional trials.
