Sporting AZ FC's Eijin Kishimoto is in England for a trial with EFL League Two club Swindon Town F.C. 

The 23-year-old fullback/wingback was crucial to Sporting's runs to both the championship final of the 2018 UPSL National Playoff and the third round of the 2018 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup.  He grabbed national attention when he converted the final penalty in Sporting's shootout victory over Phoenix Rising FC on May 16.

Originally from Nagoya, Japan, "Kishi" joined Sporting AZ FC on a trial in early 2018 after starring at Meiji University in Tokyo. 

Sporting AZ FC ownership and staff wish Kishi the very best on his trial at Swindon Town.
