Rising Stars FC to hold open trials for U-19 players on Monday, club TM says

Rising Stars Football Club of Akure says it will hold an open trials session on Monday to recruit players who are below the age of 19 for the club.

Seun Betiku, the club’s Team Manager, told newsmen on Saturday in Akure that the emphasis on players of that age was to ensure talents were discovered early.

He said this was further made necessary by the fact that the club’s team of last season in the Nationwide League One (NLO) had been disbanded.

“The team is now being refocused to discover talented players to be sold to clubs in Europe and also promoted to our sister club, Sunshine Stars.

“This is also a way to generate revenue for the state from the sale of players to clubs outside the country.

“The players we will be needing amongst our old players will soon be. invited to the team in due course,” the team manager said.
