14-year-old right back Prince Sengu has recently been on trial with Premier League club Watford and Wolves after attending one of our London trials in February.
Prince, who currently lives in Newham East London, impressed scouts at his first ever trial with us. Prince’s mother told us: “We found your company online and decided to book. Prince had never had a trial before the one with you, so he was very lucky to be scouted on his first try.”
Watford’s facilities did not disappoint Prince or his mother with her stating: “The facilities at Watford were beautiful. Prince was really excited, as he had never seen anything like it. He had his trial in the dome and he said to me “mum, this is the real deal.”
The trial was set up to put Prince through his paces with around ten minutes of drills followed by a match that lasted around an hour. This however, did not faze Prince in the slightest with his mother telling us: “The trial went really well. Prince was so, so confident. He didn’t know anyone there but he didn’t let it get to him. Everything was brilliant.”
As well as the facilities, Prince also thought the coaching was also to a very high standard, stating: “The coaches were excellent, they were very welcoming and they really cared about us. They gave us a kit to wear during the trial too. It was a really brilliant experience, it was so beautiful.”
After assessing his performance during the trial both Prince and his mother felt that he had shown exactly what he could offer with his mum telling us: “Prince thought he did really well, he said to me “mum I think I played really outstanding.” and I think he played really well too, he really was very good.”
Unfortunately Prince wasn’t quite what Watford was looking for and was not invited back for further trials. His experience with Wolves was also unfortunately brought to an end after their development centre in London was closed.
Despite what happened, Prince should feel very proud about getting this far with two Premier League clubs. Everyone at UK Football Trials would like to wish Prince the very best of luck for the future and hope he continues to grow as a footballer and come back stronger than ever.
