Non-League Winger on Trial
Friday, 4th Jan 2013 11:26

Banbury United winger Kynan Isaac has spent the week on trial with the Blues. The 20-year-old will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of fellow Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division player Tyrone Mings, who made the leap from Chippenham to Championship football with Town only last month.

Banbury manager Edwin Stein, the brother of one-time Town loanee Mark, says the former Oxford City player has the right attitude to impress the Blues staff: “He’s got a hell of a chance. Mick McCarthy is a good, fair manager and he will have a good look at him.

“You can see the desire and the hunger Kynan has to succeed and you have to feed it. He has been excellent and I can’t fault his commitment.

“He’s led the line well for me and created havoc among opposition defences. He’s a joy to have around.

“He’s definitely got the ability to do it. He’s well made up. It’s now down to Ipswich – it’s their call.”

Left-sided Isaac was with Reading’s youth set-up before being released and joining Oxford City in February 2011. He moved on to Banbury in October of last year and since then has scored six goals in 15 games.

Isaac had a trial with Stoke in the summer and earlier in the season a similar spell with Brighton was cut short by injury.

A left winger, great stuff, Mick has a proven track record of unearthing gem's from the lower leagues :)

^'another nobody'? May I remind you where Mick picked up Knightly and Matt Jarvis from? *Lower leagues* now be quiet and let Mick do his job. In Mick we trust.

Sounds promising, plus its not like he is going to have massive wages so it is very much worth a gamble on him.

I like the fact we're looking into the non leagues, Mick and his two scouts have had great success plucking players from no where and turning them into good players. We have to build for the future as much as for the present.

This fella is absolute mustard! He had that much potential a couple of years ago they decided to name a bar in Ipswich after him! Give it a couple if years you'll be going on holiday and having a bar crawl from LINEKERS to ISSACS to Amnesia!! =^>

Interesting mick has signed two non leauge players, they must be good though.

oscarwhiting added 11:49 - Jan 4
COYB66- he hasn't sighned this one yet he's on trial. But I do agree though they must be good and hopefully we will get to see TM play 2mozz

Im affraid Mings cannot play tomorrow as he is cup tied. Shame as it would have been good to see what he has to offer.

reesoid: I would've marked you down. . . but I think that's what you want so I didn't bother.

Rather a team of close-knit nobody's than a bunch of over paid primo's, interested in just one thing.

from banbury and have mates that have played with this lad, apparently a good young winger! used to be with reading for a bit! cant be a bad thing!

taylor15 added 13:33 - Jan 4
what a day! i'm in love with mick mccarthy! he really isn't messing around and has already been working his magic in the transfer window! just need another central midfielder, proper goalscorer, maybe a couple of wingers, and some at the back, and we're sorted! COYB!

would LOVE to see connor wickham come back on loan though, because he is a massive handful and proved that against chelsea!

Kynan Style

everybody is a nobody until they make a name for themselves.the lad banging in the goals at peterborough at the mo was playing for stanstead 18 months ago and tomlin who plays with him was from non league.nobody had heard much of stuart pearce or ian wright before they were brought out of non league.I watch alot of non league players and i think alot of them would be worth a punt...remember simon milton
