Sierra Leone skipper on trial at Town

Swindon Advertiser: Ibrahim Kargbo Ibrahim Kargbo

SWINDON Town have taken the captain of the Sierra Leone national side on trial, while a former West Brom midfielder is also training with the Robins this week.

Ibrahim Kargbo and Elikem Amenku will both feature in the pre-season clash at Yate Town tonight, as well as the trip to Swindon Supermarine tomorrow, as they look to earn a contract in Wiltshire.

Kargbo is a defensive midfielder who has won 36 caps for his country and can boast having played in Belgium, the Netherlands and Turkey. Most recently, the 32-year-old was on the books of RWDM Brussels, while he has also won the Azerbaijani Cup with Baku FC.

Amenku was released by the Baggies at the end of last season.

A former England age group international, the central midfielder has yet to play a professional game and at 19 years old is in search of a new club.

The pair join Khalil Lambin and Jonathan Vandesompele Ladid as trialists at Liddington, as manager Mark Cooper looks to uncover another diamond in the rough.

Elikem Amenku in action

Cooper said: “With the way we are, that’s what we do.

“We try to pick little nuggets up and polish them up.

“They’ve trained this week and done fine.”

Meanwhile, Town striker Miles Storey yesterday completed his long-protracted move to Portsmouth, as predicted in Thursday’s Advertiser.

Pompey finally ended their two-month pursuit of the player by pinning him down to a season-long loan at Fratton Park, with manager Andy Awford delighted with the capture.

Awford said: “Miles has been a target for us since the end of last season and I'm delighted that he's joined us. I watched him play on a few occasions last season and I believe that he'll add an extra dimension to our attacking options.

“We're very grateful to Swindon for letting him come to Fratton Park for the season.”

old town robin says...

2 more mid-fielders then, certainly a bit of extra height and steel in defence won't go amiss. Still no announcement on the problem CB position that probably see us needing two new players (assuming Ward is not likely to feature too much). (About time town confirmed their intentions for him as he still has a year on his contract). Looks promising for Stephens return, but one youngster is enough, he needs to be playing along side an experienced player that still has the legs and height to tighten things up at the back.

Getting closer to completing the squad, with Storey and possibly Waldron going out on loan, we will need a decent striker, because neither of the two fore-mentioned or Barker are up to scratch for a regular starting place unless there is some dramatic improvement in their game. Jury still out on Smith too, but I'm sure he will be given the benefit of the doubt to prove he is capable of 15 - 20 goals a season.

Kargbo is decribed primarily as a defender as is JVL who is also on Trial
.
I guess that they can also play in Midfield means they are ball playing CB's that Power wants

Beat me to it Chish, & Don Wilma's theme song is "he's just too bad to be true, at scoring goals not a clue, "
Here's hoping she doesn't lose her handbag and trip over her stiletto's!

As an aside checked out the 10% S/T offer today for the DR stand - £373.50 Adult £292.50 OAP - for new not renewals. Power's catch the OAP price only kicks in at 65yrs. I turn 65 in Dec. so Power shot himself in foot- he could have had £292 today but he can whistle for £373. I'll wait and buy 1/2 price S/t in Dec. does he want bums on seats or not?
