Ex-Mildenhall Town winger Kelvin Enaro is hoping he can impress this weekend and earn a deal at Bury Town for the upcoming season.
The Nigerian youngster has been on trial at Ram Meadow during the last few weeks and will get another chance to show his credentials when the Blues host Colchester United Under-18s tomorrow (3pm).
Enaro made 49 appearances for Mildenhall last season and was among the starters in their Thurlow Nunn League Challenge Cup final victory over Norwich United.
The right winger, whose contract ran out at the end of last season and was not renewed, has also turned out for Soham Town Rangers during the summer in bid to find a new club.
Bury assistant manager Christian Appleford has been impressed with Enaro’s performances during pre-season and said: “We’ll have another look at Kelvin this weekend; he’s got pace and can go past players.
“Kelvin played well on Tuesday night in the friendly against Long Melford. He got past his full-back a few times and put crosses in.”
Two players who have been successful in their trials at Ram Meadow this summer are Andrew Cusack and Tom Debenham, who Appleford revealed have both agreed deals with the club for the 2016-17 campaign.
Joe Balter netted an injury-time winner for the Blues on Tuesday night in their 3-2 pre-season friendly win against Long Melford, with tomorrow’s clash with Colchester their final outing before their Ryman League Division One North opener against Waltham Abbey on August 13.
n Needham Market assistant manager Richard Wilkins is hopeful that the club can bring in one or two new players before the season starts.
The Marketmen were forced to cancel their friendly with Bury Town last Saturday because of a lack of players, and ahead of their final pre-season friendly at home to Maldon and Tiptree tomorrow (3pm), Wilkins has his eye on several potential signings.
“We’re still looking for a couple more offensive targets,” he said. “Me and Mark have been making a lot of phone calls.”
