Last year, the 19-year-old from Brockworth made the play-off stage in the ePremier League representing Tottenham Hotspur and once again competed this February for the North London outfit. 

McAlary finished in the top four for two consecutive seasons in the Spurs ePremier League and will now represent his hometown club in the UltimateQuaranTeam tournament, which kicks-off from 7pm onwards on Sunday 22 March.

"I'm very happy to be given this opportunity and I'm very confident with the competitive experience behind me that I can win or at least take the club far in this competition."
