Swansea City Hand Trial To Farnborough Striker

Swansea City Hand Trial To Farnborough Striker

Swansea City have handed a trial to Farnborough striker Dean McDonald.

Following Paulo Sousa's departure this week, coaches Alan Curtis and Colin Pascoe take temporary charge until the club find a replacement, and they'll take a look at the 24 year-old to see if he's good enough to earn himself a contract.

He started his career as a youth player with Arsenal, before joining Ipswich Town in 2003. During his spell with the Tractor Boys, he went on loan to Hartlepool United. Ipswich rejected a fee for the player before he joined Gillingham on a free transfer in 2006.

He then had brief spells with Inverness Caledonian Thistle, Rushden & Diamonds, Northwich Victoria and Tooting & Mitcham United between 2007 and 2009.

Scoring 15 goals in 16 games for Farnborough in the Conference South division last season attracted scouts at his games. Scottish Premier League side Celtic are also believed to be in interested in Dean McDonald.
