With a number of trialists with us, including Magaye Gueye, Matthew Briggs and Jean Eudes Maurice, the gaffer has already made some earlier decisions.

Speaking to News Shopper about 24 year old former Everton player Gueye, manager Ian Holloway said he would be taking another opportunity to have a good luck at him in a match situation because it’s possible he can do something with him.

With Stevenage next up, Gueye is likely to get another chance to impress following his 45 minute run out against Dartford where he was impressive and could’ve scored himself.

‘This other kid I think he had got a lot of ability and maybe we can polish him up if the group is strong enough to get him fitter and tell him the truth – you’re going to work as hard as we are son. And being French sometimes some of the more talented ones don’t want to do that. He had got some talent, and I’ve invited him back.’

Holloway says there’s no guarantee he will be back yet, but the invite has been made, but undoubtedly he had ability, but obviously being a free agent he is naturally behind the fitness of others even at this stage.

‘He created three chances the other day in the training game and we scored all three of them – Jimmy Abdou, Martyn Woolford and Lee Martin scored.’

Another trialist who got a run out was former Fulham defender Matthew Briggs, and Holloway also hopes/expects to see him get another run out in the game against Stevenage.

One player moving on though, is Maurice.

Speaking to the South London Press after his week with us, the gaffer admitted he had let the player go and that’s why he didn’t figure in the Dartford friendly, as ultimately he’d rather give the opportunity to Fred Onyedinma.

‘I have let him go. With his age (28 years old), I did not want to waste any more of his time. It’s a very tough standard I want to bring in. Fred has looked sharp in training and if that’s the case, the French boy is not going to get a chance. I would rather work with Fred.’
