Aston Villa FC player and winner of the 2017 FLOW Ultimate Football Experience, Ronaldo Flowers, will leave Antigua on Saturday for England where he is set to tryout with the ASE (Academy of Sporting Excellence).
The 15-year-old striker was impressive during the FLOW Ultimate Experience, advancing to the regional round of the event alongside Jamaica’s Shaquan Telemaque in 2017. He then moved onto the final stage with Trinidad & Tobago’s 16-year-old, Che Benny, where they visited England.
There, they watched a live Manchester United game in the English Premier League (EPL).
As part of the initiative, Flowers and Benny also met with Manchester United Legends on their own turf and had a tour of the Manchester United Museum.
The Antiguan will however be accompanied by his mother, Betty-Ann Martin, to North London where they will remain until September.
ASE is known for its ties to top English academies like Arsenal, Chelsea, West Ham and Tottenham Hotspur and has become one of the country’s most successful centres for elite sports performers, working with some of the country’s best athletes and footballers. 
Flowers scored three goals for Aston Villa in the First Division during the 2017/18 domestic season but netted 17 times for the Antigua Grammar School (AGS) during the schools competition.
FLOW will be funding the trip for the player and his mother.
