FORMER York & District League goalkeeper Brendan Ledgeway has written his name into the University of Montevallo history books.

Ledgeway has graduated from the Alabama institute with a finance degree but also picked up several honours on the football pitch during his four-year scholarship.

The ex-Rufforth shot-stopper helped Montevallo win the Peach Belt Conference Championship three times while on campus. They finished runners-up during the other season.

His final year, meanwhile, saw 26-year-old Ledgeway crowned Student Athlete of the Year as he made the All-Conference and All-Region select teams.

He also now owns a string of university records including most career clean sheets (32), the lowest goals-against average (0.91 per match), the longest scoreless streak (529 minutes) and the most games played (79).

Ledgeway, who only took up goalkeeping at 16 and played for Whitby Town and Marske United before going to the States, is now hoping to fix up trials with senior American teams in Charleston, Charlotte, Atlanta, Wilmington, Richmond and Carolina.

US-based ex-Northern Ireland and Bradford City goalkeeper Aidan Davison is also helping him gauge possible pro interest in England.
