BHS senior will play soccer in England next fall

Cameron Chalue-Feeney signs letter of intent

Posted

Cameron Chalue-Feeney is taking his game across the pond.

The Barrington High School senior recently signed his collegiate letter of intent to play soccer for Everton FC Academy in England, while he attends Liverpool John Moores University for Architecture.

“I’ve always wanted to go (to England),” Cameron said, adding that he is a fan of the Manchester City professional soccer team.

“I feel like the soccer I’ll be playing in England will be challenging. It’s all they play there. It’s a massive thing over there.”

Cameron said he believes he will be up for the challenge, however. The BHS senior had a strong season, filling a variety of positions on the field for the Eagles. Cameron said he saw time at left wing, center back and center mid. He also played striker as some points.

“I was one of the players that could sort of play anywhere,” he said.

Cameron was also one of the Eagles’ leading scorers this season.

“I’m confident in any position,” he said. “I really understand every position.”

In addition, Cameron has strong ball skills with both feet and is a physical player, able to hold off opponents.

The BHS student-athlete credited his decision to play soccer and attend college in England to his club coach, who put him in contact with a recruiter from England.

“We started talking in February,” Cameron said. Those conversations progressed and eventually Cameron said his dream of playing soccer and attending college in England became very clear. He said he is very excited to experience the different culture and meet new people while competing for the Everton FC Academy team of the Everton franchise.

“I’ve always wanted to” play in England, he said. “Ever since I was little.”

Initially, Cameron had dreamed of playing American football, but his parents would not allow him to do so. Instead, he started playing soccer and found that he loved that game as well.

“I've probably been playing soccer since I was four or five,” he said.

Cameron said he will miss his family and friends while he is in England, but is excited for the challenge that rests ahead.

“I feel like I'll have a good chance over there,” he said.
