Congratulations to FC Durham Academy (FCD) Goalkeeper Dior Wilson on signing with University of West Alabama (UWA)!

Dior is joining the highly competitive UWA Tigers Program that is always in the running Gulf South Conference Championship.

Rich Hirst our Girl's High-Performance Manager says "She has been with FCD for 7 season and will be graduating from our program having made an impact on many of our members and staff. Dior is another one of those players that I have been honoured to coach for a long time period.  Her game presence, game command and penalty area ownership is at an extremely high level which is almost impossible to find in a goalkeeper at this transitioning point. Quiet off the field and THE commander on the field. Combining this with her intense competitive mentality, bravery and reaction Dior will be stepping in as a Freshman and challenging for a starting position at UWA. The statement we use to describe an elite work rate in training is - "punching a clock". Dior exudes this statement!  I am thankful to also get to know Dior as a person over this time period. Well rounded, devoted, and sincere are a few words I would use to describe her."

We look forward to following this next step of her journey and all her future successes.
