Former Tottenham Hotspur winger Roman-Michael Percil on trial at Southend United
FORMER Tottenham Hotspur winger Roman-Michael Percil looks set to feature for Southend United at Great Wakering Rovers tomorrow.
The 19-year-old has been training with the Shrimpers following his release from White Hart Lane.
And Blues boss Phil Brown is expecting to run the rule over him at Burroughs Park.
“Roman has been training with us and this game will be our first chance to see him in a game,” said Brown.
“It’s obviously a good chance for him to show us what he can do.”
Percil, a former Republic of Ireland under 16 international, came through the ranks with Tottenham but failed to work his way in to the first team.
He will now be hoping to secure a switch to the Shrimpers and is likely to figure alongside experienced former Hull City striker Craig Fagan who is also on trial with Blues.
A Danish centre-back could also feature.
