Millwall trial former Leicester City target

NOAH Chesmain and Matthew Neary scored for Millwall against Folkestone Invicta on Tuesday night in a game that also featured former Leicester City target Charlie Coppola.

Lewes midfielder Coppola, 18, went on trial with the Foxes in April 2016.

Brighton-born Coppola, a left-footed wide player, broke into the Lewes team in the 2015-16 season. Manchester United were also reported to have sent scouts to watch him.

On Tuesday he was in Adam Barrett’s side as they twice recovered from going behind to goals from Ian Draycott and Kieron McCann to claim a draw.

Chesmain (above) scored the first equaliser with a free-kick and Neary finished in the second half to make it 2-2.

Millwall: Sandford; McNamara, Mbulu, Rooney, Chesmain; White, Wicks, Donovan, Coppola; Twardek; Parish.

Subs: Jackson, Queeley, Tiensia, Debrah, Topalloj, Olaofe, Skeffington, Neary, Taylor, Saunders-Hendry.
