JOE ANDERSON could go from being relegated in the Blue Square Premier to playing in the revamped UEFA Cup inside half-a-dozen games.
The amazing switch from the likes of Barrow to Bulgaria for the 19-year-old Fulham left-back, is on the cards after the Whites moved to within a point of a European slot at the end of the season.
Anderson was loaned out to Blue Square Premier strugglers Woking in January and nearly provided the winner for his temporary club when he side-footed home against Mansfield on Saturday.
Unfortunately for the academy graduate, the Stags equalised and other results relegated Woking on Tuesday. But Whites boss Roy Hodgson has promised his protégé the opportunity to make it to the Fulham first team if the extra burden of new Europa League games becomes a reality.
Anderson said: "The gaffer reckoned coming to Woking would give me match experience - and it has helped. He also said that with Fulham's small squad, he would need me to be available to fill in gaps to give the likes of Paul Konchesky a rest."
The Europa League preliminary rounds kick off in August.
