Two Under 8 players have been asked to train with an un-named Premier League club having been scouted playing for Lions.
Head of Junior Coaching, Tony Gold said: ‘Toby Brent and Harry Emden have done really well and it’s great they get a chance to see what it’s like training with other kids from their age group at a top club’.
‘This is part of what happens when we lift the profile of the club, and the standard of our players, managers and coaches over the last two seasons’.
‘We have recently been asked to accommodate scouts from a number of professional clubs at Rowley Lane who have heard good things about us and want to check out the talent’.
‘Whether they train for a single session or end up signing one day, the experience is good for them and we encourage it’.
Toby and Harry’s invitation comes on the heels of Zack Freedman in the Under 11 Whites who was invited to trial at Tottenham Hotspur over the summer and was then asked to stay on for an intensive period of training at the club’s facility before returning to Lions.
Last season another Lions star, Eli Miller, signed a two-year contract with Watford.
