Crystal Palace: Gavin Beavers set for Eagles trial

Crystal Palace: Gavin Beavers set for Eagles trial - Crystal Palace News

Crystal Palace are set to take another Real Salt Lake goalkeeper on trial in Gavin Beavers.

The Lowdown: Palace scouring MLS market

Reports last week name-checked Palace with an interest in Fernando Delgado, another stopper from the MLS club. The Eagles were set to take the Mexico under-17 international on trial between 3rd and 19th November, with the youngster looking to earn a contract with Palace.

It looks as if Delgado will be joined in south London by a Real Salt Lakr team-mate in Beavers, who at 6 foot 4 is a towering figure for his tender age.

The Latest: Trials confirmed

Real Salt Lake confirmed on their official website on Monday evening that Delgado is heading to Palace for a trial.

The MLS club added that Beavers will follow suit in regards to travelling to London for the same purpose, with Real Monarchs goalkeeper coach Mirza Harambasic accompanying the young duo.

The Verdict: One to watch

You’d expect that Delgado and Beavers will both be looking to impress Palace chiefs and potentially earn a deal at Selhurst Park, so the pair could be names to keep an eye on over the course of the month.

Beavers is older than the Mexican and has more experience for Real Monarchs, a third-tier side in the USA and the reserve team for Real Salt Lake, making 17 appearances compared to Delgado’s two.
