Dean Keates Keeping Quiet as Mystery Trialist Scores Against Rushall

Walsall manager Dean Keates has spoken to the local press following Friday evening's pre-season defeat to Rushall Olympic, and offered a few hints about the identity of the illusive 'trialist 2', who bagged the Saddlers' only goals as they lost by two-goals-to-one at Dales Lane.

The gaffer, who has already added Andy Cook, Chris Dunn, Josh Ginnelly and Zeli Ismail to his first-team squad, insisted that the mystery man is doing well as the boss continues to consider his options.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Dean said; "I can tell you a lot about him but I’m not going to. He has come in and been with us for a week. He had an opportunity to play in the country when he was a lot younger and that was at a Premier League team.

"His family choose the education route. He got a degree in his homeland. And the agent that had him over here at an academy in the Premier League has now recommended him to us.

"I wouldn’t say he is a shot in the dark because he has played at a good level in his homeland. But he got put to us and knowing the agent and some of the other players he’s helped develop, we thought we’d take a look at him.

"Full credit to the lad, he is paying for his own digs and own flight because he wants to come over here. He’s been down the academic route but now he wants to try and get into football. He did well at Rushall and he has done well in training."
