The youngest player of the Allstars team, Joshua Otieno, yesterday joined the Hull City Under 18 and Under 23 for a training session at Bishop Burton College where the Hull City Academy is based.

Joshua who hardly got a chance to interact with the team as he had joined the AllStars squad late in London, remained in Hull for some exposure, having missed the opportunity like the rest of the team to train on the EPL side grounds.

Hull City Development Phase Coach Richard O'donnelle who will be in charge of for the sessions says he will focus on general match preparation and developing possession for today's training. 

Aspects of this will include passing,endurance, mobility, weight of the pass and accuracy among other tactics.

Accompanied by football development manager Patrick Naggi, Joshua will undergo  a two-day training with the Hull team.

"I'm excited as this opportunity will help me attain better skills. I don't feel bad about not taking part in the game, I'm optimistic that there'll be more opportunities. This is just the beginning," said an elated Joshua.

Joshua is a form 3 student at Kakamega High  School. The Sony Sugar player plays offensive right position 8 and can also play defensive midfield. 

The Hull City club begins its programmes from age 7/8 to 11years (Foundation Phase) and then progresses to the Youth Phase which targets age 12-16 and finally to the 18-23 Professional Development Phase. The club further categorises the teams by age each with a head coach and  supporting staff to facilitate training and development.
