Posh Trial For Non-League Golden Boot Hotshot


Peterborough United are giving a trial to a Non-League hotshot who has scored 52 goals in 50 games.

Conor Washington landed the United Counties League Premier Division Golden Boot for his goalscoring exploits with St Ives. He has since been offered a 3-day trial with the first team Development squad at Posh next week.

Not surprisingly, Posh aren't the only interested team looking at the 19-year-old. Cambridge United and Dagenham and Redbridge have both expressed a firm interest while League One Brentford are also monitoring the situation.

Despite playing eight levels below Posh, his current manager is confident Washington has the potential to play in the Championship as he spoke to www.peterboroughtoday.co.uk: 'Conor has been offered the chance to go to Peterborough for three days. It is a great opportunity for him and we all hope he makes a good impression during his time at London Road.' said St Ives manager St Ives boss Jez Hall.

'He was at Posh before he came to us but back then at 16 he was a lot smaller and maybe lacked a bit of confidence, but that is not an issue now.

'Since he came through from our youth set-up he has done tremendously well and it is no surprise to me that there has been so much interest in the lad - he is certainly far too good for this level of football.

'We have had a lot of interest from a lot of clubs and we have accepted that Conor will be leaving us this summer, it is just a case of where he goes.

'Hopefully it will be to Posh as I am a fan and it would be great if he got the chance to continue to develop his career there.

'There are plenty of fans who come to our games who pay their money just to see Conor play, he is that good. He has excellent pace and bags of skill and with the right guidance I think he could be a real hit at Posh.

'He has certainly taken this league by storm and there is no reason to think he cannot do that at a much higher level.

'He will have to work at it of course but if things work out for him next week and he gets a chance I could see him having the same kind of impact that Taylor has had this season.

'And even if things don`t work out at London Road, I am sure he will get a good move as he is such an exciting talent someone is bound to snap him up.'
