Fergany, who used to play for Lewes Football Club, will head out to America in August.

His four-year deal will see him join Louisburg College to combine university studies with a high-level of football aswell.

Speaking on the exciting new venture, Fergany admits it will offer him a great opportunity and said: “I chose to study in the USA because it allows me to play a high-level of football as well as completing my studies.

“I am most looking forward to playing with a winning team out there as the college I am going to are national champions.

“I haven’t been part of a winning team in England, so it will be good to see how I progress with a winning mentality.

“I chose Louisburg College because they are national champions, the best possible team I could have joined, so it was not a hard decision.

“When I get there, I know that we will all work hard and become national champions again, I’m sure of that.”

Fergany will head out to Loisburg, North Carolina, in August.

As well as playing for his college, Ferganty will also link up with local soccer side Louisburg Hurricanes.

The Brighton-based talent is delighted to have secured his soccer scholarship through PASS4Soccer Scholarship Network.

Places in the network are now available for students seeking to enter a US university soccer programme in both August 2017 and 2018.

PASS4Soccer will be holding trials in the following locations; Gloucester and Nottingham (this month), London (September) and London, Birmingham, Newcastle (October).
