Oppong on Trial With Birmingham
Monday, 10th Jan 2022 22:39

Town youngster Colin Oppong was in action with Championship Birmingham City’s U23s as they drew 2-2 away against Burnley this evening.

Northern Ireland-born striker Oppong played the first hour for the Midlanders before being replaced.

The 19-year-old, whose Town contract is up at the end of the month, previously had a trial spell with Colchester United in November.

Having featured for the U23s last season, he has not been involved this term.

Oppong spent a second spell on loan at Lowestoft earlier in the season after a trial at Dartford with a view to a loan in the summer. He previously had a stint on loan at Bury Town having joined the Blues from Cliftonville.

Seen him play for the u23s several times shows the odd glimpse of potential but not outstanding very surprised he's gone on loan to Birmingham hope he does well. Be interesting to see if McKenna has any input on the academy set up we need to start producing outstanding prospects not just good ones.

Linkboy… the problem in the short term for Mck is he has 28 first team players plus a whole host of U23 pros who’ve played some first team football to assess. This is already too big a squad and far bigger than lamberts in terms of senior pros. It will make it hard for him especially with the need to make up so much ground in league one. I’m sure long term he’ll want the kids to be coached In a certain way throughout the club and get more involved in terms which young players he wants elevating to the first team scene…. But Cook has left an awful lot of tidying up to do and there are only 24 hours in the day. I think we’ll see his influence gradually across the club but promotion has to be his priority for the next 4 months.

Good luck to the lad, I hope that he makes it.
