Ollie McCoy is aiming to follow up his hat-trick heroics for Beaconsfield SYCOB in the FA Cup by impressing the scouts at Brimingham City this week.
McCoy, whose treble earned Beaconsfield a 3-1 third qualifying round win over Felixstowe & Walton on Saturday, has since then been on trial with the Championship side, along with fellow SYCOB youngster Ryan Hill.
The pair will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of striker Omari Patrick, who started last season with SYCOB and last week signed for another Championship side, Barnsley, via a spell with Kidderminster Harriers.
Beaconsfield boss Andy Hurley said: “Ollie has always been a talented lad, but since coming into side and playing men's football, he has really matured as a player. He's a wide player, but we have worked hard on his finishing this year.
“With him and Ryan getting this opportunity, and Omari getting his move to Barnsley, that is the whole reason we introduced the link up with the FAB Academy. It does amuse us though that we have local sides not interested in these lads.
“Ollie will still be available for us at weekends for now though, especially while we are still in the FA Cup. We have got a really tough game in the next round, so we want to have as strong a team out as possible.”
SYCOB's opponents in the fourth and final qualifying round, at home on Saturday week, are National League South outfit Brackley Town.
It will be a change being underdogs for Beaconsfield, who have beaten teams from a level below in the last two rounds.
However, just as Hurley predicted, Felixstowe & Walton made it tough for his side on Saturday and actually took an early lead before McCoy killed off any hopes of an upset.
Hurley added: “I'm extremely pleased with the boys, we played really well. Our opponents may have been from a level below, but they gave us a really good game.”
One cup Beaconsfield won't be progressing in is the League Challenge Cup, having crashed out 4-2 on penalties to Northwood on Tuesday night following a 2-2 draw, in which Josh Dillon and Tristan Campbell netted. SYCOB have no game this Saturday but visit play-off chasing Royston Town in Southern One Central next Tuesday night.
