Josh kicks a goal with trip to UK

LONDON'S calling this Murwillumbah East Public School boy.

Well, more accurately, Liverpool's Everton Football Club is.

From April 7-14 this year 10 year old Josh Wentworth will meet his hero Tim Cahill, train with the Everton Academy and watch the team play Sunderland in a Premier League match.

Josh was one of four picked from hundreds attending Newcastle, Canberra and Sydney Tim Cahill Football Clinics during January this year.

His single mum Jodie said during a speech about soccer Josh read in 2010, while in Year 3, he said "I am going to be a Socceroo and hope to play internationally".

Ms Wentworth has given her all to helping her son achieve his dream, while also raising his brother who suffers from Asperger's Syndrome.

It is only a matter of time until she is no longer funding his passion, but instead watching him earn a living from it.

Cahill will call Josh on Monday to invite him to Everton in April.

His first reaction when told about this was "What do I say to him?"

He told My Daily News it might be "What's your juggling record?"

Josh's personal best is 2184, during one hour.

Ms Wentworth said he could not walk for a week.
