So far, 9 trialists have been named along with Danny Mitchley & Conor Higginson with 5 youth teamers set to take part (names not yet revealed), presuming none of the kids are goalkeepers, we may see Alan Marriott & Shane Redmond in action at some stage. Here’s a list of the trialists and their positions for tomorrow’s game.
21 year old full back, familiar to Paul Cox after a short loan spell at Eastwood, a product of the Derby County academy who has spent time at Notts County, Macclesfield & American side FC Tampa Bay
20 year old midfielder, a product of Lincoln City’s youth set up whose major contribution to football came with Swedish outfit Friska Vijor, netting 8 goals in 12 appearances.
19 year old striker who is relatively unknown unless you look in the right places, a product of Barnsley’s academy who warmed the bench for the first team last season, making 4 substitute appearances late on in the games.
19 year old centre half who is yet to get a taste of 1st team action, also a product of Barnsley’s academy
24 year old striker who is the only name on the list of trialists (bar one) that people recognise. A product of the enemies youth set up, has plenty of games under his belt both in & out of the football league. His most recent spell comes from Worksop Town, netting 5 times in 27 outings. If he’s anything like his half brother (Bolton’s Kevin Davies) we’ve got a decent prospect on our hands.
20 year old left back, back for his second spell at Field Mill after being put trough his paces by the lesser twin a few seasons back.
23 year old defender with world cup qualifying stages experience. Has had spells at Bradford before moving onto Forests youth set up before moving on to a host of other clubs, including a trial period with Cardiff City.
22 year old Hungarian defender, nothing much of the grape vine for this one – which is great for a commentator! But it does mean he can write his own story, so swings and roundabouts.
Just a reminder, on Sunday I’ll have a commentary podcast for you plus a report on the game & how the trialists did in my opinion, so save www.cp14-coveringtheangles.blogspot.com to your bookmarks or type your email address on the right hand side & get the link direct to your inbox!
See you soon – COME ON YOU STAGS!
