Former Super League star’s son keen on Premier League move after professional football debut under Manchester United legend

In 2005, Brad Drew joined Huddersfield Giants and spent three seasons with the club before the former Penrith Panthers, Parramatta Eels and Canberra Raiders hooker joined Wakefield Trinity on a two-year deal helping the club finish fifth.

He returned to Huddersfield for his final season in 2010 making nine appearances before retiring.

Little did he know at the time that he move could help facilitate his son’s future.

His son, Jed has broken into the Australian football league, the A-League and according to The Mole of Wide World of Sports, he has his heart set on a move to the Premier League and is working with former Premier League star and Manchester United man Dwight Yorke at Macarthur FC on the wing.

Speaking to The Mole, Drew explained who his son’s career has flourished with European clubs interested:

“I finished my league career in England and Jed grew up there, and that’s where he got his love for soccer.

“He went back there with the Australian Schoolboys a couple of years ago and got a couple of nibbles from European clubs.

“Once he gets a bit more experience in the A-League it’s something we may look at.

“Dwight is an attacking coach so Jed loves the way he runs the team and hopefully he will keep developing.

“This is his first full season and he is improving all the time.”
