Now Stoke Show Interest in SYCOB Pair

Beaconsfield SYCOB youngsters Ollie McCoy and Ryan Hill are on trial at Stoke City after their Evo-Stil League Southern Division One Central club’s record-breaking run in the Emirates FA Cup came to an end.

Striker McCoy and midfielder Hill were also on trial at Birmingham City earlier this month.

The duo are spending the week in the Potteries hoping to impress the Premier League club after playing in last week’s 5-0 FA Cup exit at the hands of Brackley Town in the Fourth Qualifying round.

SYCOB joint-manager Andy Hurley said: “I spoke to them briefly and they said it’s going really well. Birmingham said they’re interested but want to see them again in three to four months’ time, which I can understand, but Stoke wanted to have a look too. We’ll wait and see, but it’s always like that when boys go on trial.”

The pair are hoping to follow in the footsteps of SYCOB striker Omari Patrick who started last season with the club and signed for Championship outfit Barnsley in September following a spell with Kidderminster Harriers.

Former Maidenhead United front man McCoy made his Beaconsfield debut in February 2016, while Hill is a graduate of the club’s league and county cup winning under-18s side.
