Sheffield Wednesday strike Gold Coast development deal
The scholorships, channelled through Poric's Total Football Academy, will go to the best 15-year-olds under his care, with the chosen ones guaranteed two-year stints at Wednesday under the club's development chief Sean McAuley.
Joining Poric on his academy's coaching staff will be former Everton striker Michael Branch and ex-Jordan international Bibet Kaghdo.
"But this is just something a bit extra for the lucky ones. If they impress while there then they can go on to sign a professional contract.
The boys will have to be vetted by Wednesday before they go as the club has to see the potential is there."
