Hemming of London, Ont., on trial with Town

Monday, September 17, 2001

Tyler Hemming of London, Ont., the youngest player in the Canadian Professional Soccer League, is trying to catch the favourable eye of Grimsby Town of the English First Division.

Hemming, 16, a standout defender with London City of the CPSL, is on a two-week trial with Grimsby, on England's east coast. Last week, Hemming played in an under-16 game, but was quickly moved up to play with the under-18s and under-19s.

Hemming was picked up by London City in their open trials when the season began.

"We were impressed right from the word go," said Harry Gauss, owner/GM of the CPSL team.

Hemming was selected to the CPSL all-star team for the game with Portuguese First Division team Maritimo, on July 25.

Glasgow Celtic of the Scottish Premier Division has also shown interest in Hemming.
