SHORTWOOD United striker Duncan Culley insists the next fortnight could be life-changing as he chases the American dream.

Culley,25, who has hit 24 goals in just 26 games for the Nailsworth outfit, flew Stateside this week - hoping to make the grade in the Major Soccer League.

“The next fortnight could change my life forever,” said the Bristol-born model, who also helps develop businesses privately for wealthy people.

Culley will be strutting his stuff in front of potential suitors in Seattle, where he will be watched by a number of MLS and USL clubs.

“I've got an agent over in the States ,who has been working for me,” revealed Culley.

“ I'm then off to California on Friday to train with a few clubs.”

Culley was due to play for an All Stars team against the USA today, (Thursday) after being selected from 200 trialists.

Culley spent the 2012/13 season with Division Three side Pontypridd Town before a spell at Hartpury College, where he completed a masters in business management.

Meanwhile, Alex Sykes and joint boss John Evans have signed Brimscombe and Thrupp goalscoring midfielder Adam Price, and a seven day approach put in for Cirencester left-back Ben Prictor.

Price should be free to make his Wood debut at Tiverton Town on Saturday.
