Ex-Robins hot-shot in line for World Cup dream
Updated 11:05am Wednesday 14th May 2014 in Sport
FORMER Evesham United midfielder David Accam could be off to Brazil after being named in Ghana's provisional World Cup squad.
The 23-year-old, who scored 10 goals in 20 appearances for the Robins during the 2010-11 season, is one of 26 players selected by coach Kwesi Appiah, which will be trimmed to 23 after a friendly against Holland on May 31.
His call-up comes after scoring five goals in the first nine games of the season for Swedish top division club Helsingborgs.
If he makes the cut, Accam could face Germany, Portugal and the United States in Group 'G'.
It is a remarkable rise for a player who was playing in English football's seventh tier - the Southern League Premier Division - with Evesham while studying at Hartpury College.
He was at the club along with fellow Ghanaians Isaac Shaze and Samuel Mensah but they left at the end of the season due to work permit issues.
However, the trio joined Swedish third tier outfit Ostersund in March 2012 before Accam signed for Helsingborgs for 500,000 Euros in August 2012 and played in the Champions League against Celtic.
Elsewhere, Worcester City's rivals Altrincham have joined champions Telford in winning promotion from Skrill North after beating Guiseley 2-1 in the play-off final.
