Grand Athletic has burst onto the Sunday league football scene over the last couple of seasons under the stewardship of Coach Ahmet and Vinny. One of the stand out players for them has been Trey Masikini. Anyone that watches Sunday league football will know about Trey - he's a problem!
Anyone that has seen Trey play - will know he's lightning quick, direct, with plenty of tricks and a keen eye for goal. He can play on either wing or in the CAM role. Wherever Coach Ahmet puts Trey - it will be a long 90 minutes for the opposition. His speed enables him to ghost past opponents or make runs in behind fullbacks. He also has quick feet, and combining that with his speed means he can receive the ball into his feet in a standing position and with one touch he's away and gone. Trey is not afraid to come in midfield - and get the ball and link up with his teammates. He will never only stay out wide, making him a nightmare to mark. He can drop deep - drift in midfield, or make runs behind. You cant keep him quiet for 90 minutes. Trey was in scintillating form last year - terrorising defences in all competitions. He has continued that form into this season with six goals and four assists in 12 games. Grand are seemingly on their way to winning back to back Met league titles - and they will undoubtedly be in the shakeup in the London cup and National cup next season. Next time you go to see Grand Athletic play and someone asks you who the guy is on the wing with pace to burn and bags of skill - you tell them in your best V10 voice: "That's Trey on the wing."
