Mathare United and local betting company is set to host trials for aspiring footballers at Goan Institute Football Grounds as part of its inaugural talent search launched last month in Kenya .
The trials slated for October 15 and 16 will see 1,600 selected aspiring footballers aged between 18 and 24 from across the country participate.
Skills will be tested under the watchful eyes of local and international scouts as they compete for a place in the final 16 (2 goalkeepers and 14 infield players) who will attend a specialized football training camp next month.
The camp will be a three-day venture that will be undertaken in conjunction with United Kingdom’s West Ham United and Mathare United.
Grand prize winner will have a chance to visit West Ham United in the United Kingdom for a “West Ham Experience” which will include training, sightseeing, a live match and player meet and greets.
