TALENTED Skegness siblings are currently enjoying sporting success down under.

Rory and Dione King, originally from Skegness, moved to Australia four-and-a-half-years ago with their mother and father and have both continued to play football.

Soon after their arrival, both Rory and Dione were playing for Sydney teams.

Grandparents Charlie and Janet King, said: “We are so proud of Dione and Rory, they are both so dedicated to playing football.

“We think it’s fantastic that they are doing so well down under.”

Former Skegness Infants pupil Rory, 11, plays for Moorebank Sports Soccer Club Under 12s where he was named player of the year with 22 goals in the season and also recently named player of the match in a game.

Rory’s team has also just won the Alan Shearer trophy for the best team with the highest score.

Dione, 14, has played for Sydney University under 16 ladies and has been her team and her brother’s football team trainer.

She has won a trophy for the best trainer and has just signed for next season, starting March 2012, for Gladesville Ravens.

Rory will also be attending the Endeavour Sports Highschool, starting in February 2012 through the talented sports program.

Both Rory and his sister are also avid Grimsby Town fans and wear their club shirts over in Australia.

“While over there, they have both met previous Grimsby Town players who have retired out there and become trainers,” added Charlie.
