Trialist revealed

Details of one of the trialists in the 2-1 reserve win over Southampton on Tuesday have broken online. Those of you who frequent  BCFC messageboards will have seen that one of the goalscorers was 19 year old Leamington FC forward Jacob Blyth.

Blyth, who hails from Nuneaton beat the Saints keeper with a 25 yard lob and is hopeful of another chance with the reserves as he tries to win a contract. He told Nuneaton News

“I really enjoyed the game and afterwards the manager Richard Beale told me he was more than impressed and wanted me to play for them again.

The full interview can be found here (courtesy of Oscar_Wao on www.smallheathalliance.com), and more details on him can also be found on the Leamington website here and here.

The other goal was a piledriver scored by Parisian-born teenager Eddy Gnahoré, who was on the bench last night for the Wolves game.

    Thanks for this – i was wondering – i always have this great need to find out who our trialists are! – i know i’ve emailed you quite a few times in pre season about it – so we dont know who the other one is yet? Is it known what position the other trialist played at least?

      I believe there were two others; however, I don’t know anything else. Blues had wanted to keep it quiet but as this is in the newspapers I thought it was only fair to put it out there for people who might not have seen it.

  • Matt says:

    Slightly different subject but what do you make of the rumours we’re trying to get Gardner back in on loan?
    He might have a hot reception – and would need an apologetic interview appearance to help- but he could certainly add more of a goal threat from midfield.

    • almajir says:

      I don’t think it’s likely personally. However, I would take him back – I think we lack a goalscoring central midfielder and certainly if we played one off the front man that would be the ideal role for Gardner.

    Good work fella… It’s great to think of us out scouting & trialling young talent & not falling for a sales pitch from some dodgy agent – good stuff.

  • chris says:

    leave no stone unturned, which is good news and shows the hard work and scouting our new regime is undertaking.
    hopefully this can only be good for the club as in the past we have missed many local players that have been captured by clubs outside the midlands

  • Julian says:

    I expect Blues will be very disappointed that Jacob has not remained schtum
    and let his excitement get the better of him. The confidentiality is to protect him too from public failure.
