Four on trial at Stevenage

22 Sep

Southend boss Paul Sturrock will assess four trialists during a reserve match at Stevenage tonight.

French midfielders Alexandre Tabillon, 19, and Walid Bouslimani, 21, will both play alongside former Aldershot hitman John Grant, 29, and Cardiff City youngster Nathanial Jarvis, 18.

Both Tabillon and Bouslimani played in the French amateur leagues last season. Grant was released by the shots having scored 47 goals in 127 games.

Jarvis is a highly-rated young forward who top scored for the Bluebirds’ academy side last season.

All four will start at Broadhall Way in the reserve clash that kicks off at 7pm. Reserve team boss Graham Coughlan is fielding a young side which only includes a handful of Blues’ first-team squad.

Southend: Evans, Osifuwa, Coughlan, Prosser, Nesbitt, Ferdinand, Bouzid, Bouslimani, Tabillon, Grant, Jarvis.
