Bees trial a success for Stotfold youngster

Stotfold manager Steve Young believes teenage goalkeeper George Darlow has a bright future in the game following a successful trial at League One side Brentford.

The 16-year-old played in a friendly game for the bees on Thursday last week (December 13) after impressing for Stotfold’s U18s, reserve and first team.

Young said: “George is a very talented young goalkeeper and the trial was a great experience for him.

“He was up against a couple of other U18s goalkeepers while he was there so there was some competition but he did himself proud.

Brentford have said they will be making regular checks on his progress now he is back with us.”

New signing Kim Forsythe should be in contention for Stotfold’s Christmas fixtures after joining The Rokermen on loan from Arlesey.

Some eye-catching displays for Langford saw the striker earn a trial at Cambridge City before he signed for the blues.

Young continued: “Kim scored a lot of goals for Langford but he has found it hard getting a game at Arlesey as they have such a large squad - competition for places is huge.

“Langford are in the division below us though so it will be good to see how he does playing a higher level.

“Kim is very confident but some lads find making the step up can be harder than they imagined.”
