..... we had three trialist midfielders at the club, all of whom were apparently highly rated. We only signed one of them, namely Glen Kamara. Anyone remember who the other two were? And anyone know how their careers have progressed since then?

Nils Rütten was the midfielder from Borussia Monchengladbach. He went back there and is still there until the summer. Been almost ever present in the reserve team that plays in the German equivalent of the 4th tier. Played off the bench in a few friendlies and made the first team squad a few times but nothing more. I expect he'll be away this summer when his contract ends - maybe even joining for training again here if McCann liked him?

Crescendo van Berkel was the Dutch left back/centre back and he's now playing with Sandefjord in the Norwegian top flight and was almost ever-present as they finished lower half of the table. Looks like he's on the move again as he's not returned to his team for the season.

The boy rutten looked very good when I saw him doon in Arbroath, would take him 

We had Vincent and Hateley on the wage bill at the time so I think McCann could only maybe justify the one signing there which was Kamara. Different story this summer though and I think we'll add one more in that position if O'Hara goes.

Think we could be looking at 2 centre mids this summer if O`Hara and Kamara if he`s sold

Van Berkel is still at Sandefjord, but hasn't played yet, in the 2018 league (6 games in), but the line-ups for their pre-season friendlies aren't listed. 

He only had 9 appearances last year, and was either subbed, or came on as a sub....doesn't appear to have played any full games. Sandefjord are a fairly poor side, perennial relegation candidates if in the Eliteserien.

Aye, I mind the name as we had Randy and Crescendo on trial. I thought NM was building a team based on their fantastic names. Either that or assembling a super villain. ;)

Always gives me the fear when fans rave about players in pre season games. The reports on our new players in pre season games I remember were:

Wolters - class player, going to be a big fans favourite.

Kamara - decent enough, not spectacular.

Hendry - looks a bit shaky, might struggle.

What do fans eh! :lol:

Tankulic was another who was brilliant pre season but didn't score

I was guilty of thinking Randy would be great for us. :blush: Although I liked the look of Hendry too. :)
