In the last few years West Ham have been opening soccer camps all over the States inviting the best in the area to play, trial and learn new skills. I’ve noticed this more and more recently and it has opened up opportunity for them to make it big over here and for us to find hidden gems which exist over there.
We have had various MLS players come over and have trials with us and I suppose Sebastian Lletget is the best example of these camps paying dividends. Recently I saw an article that the latest camp to open up is in Minnesota at club Gitchi Gummi (great name) and the best players in that area are expected to come and play in front of our scouts and coaches.
I suppose if we can find just one hidden gem then all this work would of paid off. Expect a few more trials next season….
