We are delighted to announce that 16-year-old Ahmed Bedjaoui has undergone a week-long trial with Fulham FC, after he was spotted at our West London trial in April. He travelled over from Algeria to take part in a series of our trials across the UK in April.
On the final trial of the week he caught the eye of the Fulham FC scout, as he displayed a fantastic touch and the ability to beat a defence with his weaving dribbles. Ahmed's agent, Mr Slimani, described his training routine: "He spent 4 weeks with me here in preparation for the trials and he trained very hard to be in the best shape possible.
We did cardio every day, running, speed and agility tests and before he came over he was training and playing regularly for his team in Algeria. "Ahmed was very impressed with the trial. The organisation was great, it was tactically impressive and very professional. There was a range of ability and ages and he was able to fit in well and do enough to stand out to the scouts. "UK Football Trials secured Ahmed a trial with Fulham FC and I am already looking at coming back with players in the summer. I’m in touch with a lot of players and I will be recommending them to come to more trials this year."
