Goalkeeper Freddy Hall On Trial With UK Team

July 13, 2010

Bermuda Hogges goalkeeper Freddy Hall is set to trial with English football team Plymouth Argyle, and news reports say he is likely to take part in tonight’s [July 13] friendly match with League Two Torquay United.

Mr Hall arived in England on Saturday, but was considered too jet-lagged to take part in Argyle’s game against Truro City that night.

Argyle boss Peter Reid said Mr Hall had been recommended to head coach Paul Mariner by former Newcastle United and West Ham goalkeeper Shaka Hislop. Mr Hall, if signed on, would probably be back-up for the experienced Romain Larrieu.

Mr Larrieu, a 33-year-old 6ft 2″ French goalkeeper, is Argyle’s current longest serving player, having joined them in 2000. In the 2006–07 season, he suffered with testicular cancer, and is presently the team Captain.
