With the JA Sports Management exit trials now over, in the coming days and weeks players will be entertaining calls and texts from clubs itching to get them on a contract.

One player that impressed us at Severn Sport on Sunday’s trial day was a former West Ham United and Ipswich Town striker who frequently displayed his pace and power.
