Trial for Rhodes?
Trial for Rhodes?
Tuesday, 14th Oct 2003 15:48

Town boss Joe Royle has denied that the Blues are set to sign Newmarket Town winger Alex Rhodes, however he does admit that it is possible the 20-year-old could come to Portman Road for a trial.

Royle rebutted an immediate contract offer for Rhodes, nicknamed 'Tiger', but said that he and his staff may run the rule over him: "Whilst he might be joining us on trial there is no question of a deal at the moment."

Rhodes, a pacy left-sided midfielder, has had trials with Norwich, Yeovil, Luton and Cambridge United recently after an impressive start to the season with Newmarket.

Early on he scored hat-tricks in three successive Ridgeons League matches, alerting league scouts to his abilities. He currently has a two-year contract with the Jockeys and would cost a fee of around £20,000.
