Soccer star Becki looks to the US
A FOOTBALL superstar at St Peter's High School in Gloucester could be set for the big time across the Atlantic.
Year 11 pupil Becki Hobbs is hoping to secure a football scholarship in the USA.
Several universities including Florida, California, South California, South Carolina and North Carolina have shown interest in her.
This would lead to Becki having a good chance to turn pro. In December, Becki will take part in a showcase event where she will demonstrate her skills in a game and there will be a chance to meet coaches, which she is hoping will lead to firm offers.

Becki has been playing since she was tiny. She was first scouted for Gloucester when she was five years old. Since then she has played for Gloucester City First Team and for Bristol Academy, as well as at county and district level. Becki also hopes one day to represent England on the biggest stage.
A spokesman for the school said: "We'll be watching her career with interest and pride."
