Due to an overwhelming response, the format of Senior Men’s and Under 20 Men’s Trials at Wynnum Wolves FC will be restructured this week.
Senior Trialists NEW to the club – who have registered their interest via the club’s Facebook link – are invited to join Wolves’ existing Senior training group for a session at Carmichael Park at 7pm on TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 5th.
Any NEW players who have registered and fall into the Under 20 category – born 2000 or later – are asked to attend training from 7pm on THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 7th .
New Wolves Senior Coach, Matt Chandler, said separating this week’s sessions would ensure ALL registered trialists are given a fair and thorough assessment in the initial stages of the trial process at Wolves. “To be honest, I’ve been overwhelmed by the interest we’ve had, and I want to make sure we take a proper look at everyone who has put their hands up to trial,” he said. “This is about maintaining the integrity of the trial process. The existing players set an extremely high standard last Thursday. That session set the benchmark and we now need to maintain that for both the Senior and 20s group over the next few weeks.
“We want to build on that quality, not dilute it, as there is always the danger of overlooking someone if we have too many players to push through a trial session all at once. Our goal is to put the best possible Senior and 20s teams on the park come February next year. If an Under 20s player is good enough, there is no reason he won’t be signed to the First team once we progress through the various stages of trials. But for this week I want to focus on looking at all trialists in separate Senior and 20s groups to make sure everyone gets a fair and honest assessment, and no one is overlooked.”
Chandler is encouraging ALL trialists to stay tuned to the Wolves’ Facebook Page, and their own personal emails, over the coming weeks as trials progress and details are shared about the process.
An announcement will soon be made about the appointment of Wolves’ Under 20s coach for the 2020 season.
