|Dutch Youngster on Trial|
Thursday, 23rd Feb 2012 22:31
TWTD understands that Dutch youngster Jordy ter Borgh was the trialist who played for Town’s reserves in Tuesday’s 1-0 behind-closed-doors victory over Crystal Palace.
Attacking midfielder ter Borgh is a youth player with Almere City, who play in the Eerste Divisie, the second tier of Dutch football. His father René is the club’s chairman.
Speaking about the trialist at Thursday’s press conference, although without naming him, manager Paul Jewell said: “He’s still here, just a kid, a 17-year-old lad we’re having a look at for a week.
“He played some part of the [reserve] game, which was why it was behind closed doors and we’ll monitor his progress.”
The paperwork involved in playing friendlies with spectators present is more complicated if trialists, particularly those with overseas clubs, are involved.

A Dutch player whose name I can't pronounce? Give the boy a 10 year contract!

Jordy ter Borgh? Surely a Star Trek influence there?

More excited that we're looking to develop a future in attacking midfielders. Bullard was spectacular (while on loan), Andrews scored goals, Martin is a driving force. Flanked left and right with a poacher up top, a four-strong attacking force is the way to go at the moment.

Wasn't Bobby Petta dutch too?
|DiamondGezzer added 07:55 - Feb 24|
Yes, but other than those, what have the Romand's ever done for us ?
Seriously, I wonder if he gave a good account of himself ?

It's great we are looking at youth from abroad but i'm a little bit concerned at the lack of movement in bringing in another centre back. Anything happening on that front?
|Surco72 added 14:29 - Feb 24|
We could have added Ruud Gullit to the dutch list if Sir Bobby had had an eye for a player !!!
