Daventry Town are holding an open trial in an attempt to bolster their squad for next season.

Darran Foster’s men enjoyed an excellent campaign last time around, just missing out on promotion.

The eventually lost out in the play-off semi-finals to Kettering Town.

Foster is in the process of strengthening his squad ahead of the new campaign and, in an unusual move, has decided to hold an open trial in a bid to perhaps unearth a hidden gem.

A club statement read: “Daventry Town are hosting an open trials day on Thursday, July 10, for anyone who would like the opportunity to play football for the club in the Southern League next season.

“Last season Daventry finished fourth in the Central Division of the Southern league, losing a play-off semi- final to Kettering Town.

“Daventry also reaches the first round of the FA Cup, losing at League Two champions Chesterfield by 2-0, in front of an attendance of 5,600.

“The appeal goes out to all players who not only have the ability to perform at this level, but will help push the club forward for promotion next season.

“If you think you have what it takes to play football at semi-professional level, then manager Darran Foster would like to hear from you.

“Footballers with or without experience of playing at level eight in the football pyramid should contact either Darran Foster on 07474 213315 or secretary Nigel Foster on 07454 521773 as early as possible.”

Meanwhile, it has been reported that Town midfielder Adam Confue has left the club to sign for AFC Rushden & Diamonds, who play in the UCL Premier Division.

Confue was a key player for Town throughout last season and would be considered a big loss.
