Trialists to get more game time to impress Millwall bosses

MILLWALL are set take another look over the coming days at a couple of trialists currently at the club.

Henrik Breimyr made a positive impact in the second half at Bromley, and Neil Harris confirmed afterwards he could give him more game time this weekend.

The 21-year-old midfielder is a physically imposing player and showed an eagerness at Hayes Lane on Tuesday evening to get on the ball and drive forward from a deep position.

His younger brother Andreas is on the books at Crystal Palace.

Meanwhile with the club potentially on the lookout for another left-back, the performance of Harry Kyprianou in Millwall XI’s scoreless draw at Braintree last Monday night will have been of interest to Harris.

The Millwall boss watched the game from the stand with assistant Dave Livermore, academy boss Scott Fitzgerald and goalkeeping coach Kevin Pressman.

Kyprianou is an 18-year-old left-sided defender who came through the ranks at Watford and once made the first-team bench for an FA Cup tie at the age of 16.

He made 22 appearances for the Hornets’ U18 side in 2013-14 but couldn’t break into the first team.

He has been training with the club for a number of weeks and an all-action display on Monday won’t have harmed his chances of earning something more permanent with the Lions.

Elite development squad manager Justin Skinner takes his U21 side to Kingstonians next Tuesday night for another pre-season friendly in which Kyprianou could again play.

A number of the club’s signed youngsters will also be back for that game after their summer break, and Carlos Edwards could feature having not played a competitive game since last September.

    Bore off hear this every year don't remember us ever signing a trialist! Go out and spend some actual pound notes preferably on a striker!

          @Jim28:
          We did sign them. They both got a 1 year contract and we're both released at the end of the season.

            @82wall: giving players a 1 yr deal is like saying we're not sure your a good player or not..really gives them confidence in them selfs
