JOSHUA Grommen is living out his dream of playing soccer professionally.

His passion for the game began when he was four years old and he would kick the ball around his backyard.

Today, his love for the game has seen him be selected to play in the big leagues overseas.

"I'm currently playing for Ceres-Negros Footbal Club in the professional football league in the Philippines,” he said.

"This season I have been to many countries within the south east Asian region.

"Recently I have been to Cambodia, Malaysia and Bahrain for international games with the U22 Philippines team for the AFC qualifiers and the Sea Games tournament.”

After reaching success overseas, Grommen has set himself some goals so he can continue playing the game he loves.

"Personally, I would like to continue my career and improve as a player as much as I can before I return to Australia, as my goal is to be able to play in the A-League,” he said.

"That has always been a dream of mine since I was little.

"Recently, I was also called up for the Men's Philippines national team for the Asian Cup qualifiers so this would be the next step for my career and hopefully be able to contribute to the A-League goal I mentioned.”
