Last I heard Tom was no chance and had taken a keener interest in Soccer.

Is he any chance? How big is he?
I’ve never seen Tom play or even seen recent photos of him, could understand things being pretty tough for him so my expectations are rather low.

Seems to be a left-field and highly speculative invitation considering we have not heard (pun intended) one iota of junior development news or word of potential talent throughout his youth. Add to that the 7 years of hell his family has gone through and I had well and truly put a line through his name. Will watch with great interest.
