Brendan Rodgers introduced two trialists in the pre-season game vs. Notts County. Deniche Hill and Paul Appiah. Both are players with an interesting path as they try to impress and hopefully get a contract and join the development set-up.
Paul Appiah used to play for Aston Villa and has a grand presence with his height and robust build. A defender that should be looked at with interest. Appiah is English but can in the future be seen playing for Ghana as this is also possible with roots down there.
Deniche Hill was the other new face out there as the Bermuda international also got minutes to show what he is worth. Hill is also supposed to be one to consider for development duty. Deniche Hill is a product of the Football Academy of Brooke House Collage. Former Leicester manager Micky Adams is their Technical Director.
Brooke House Collage are located in Leicester and do have a record of bringing forward players to a professional level as several are on that path. They started their program back in 2008 and do have more than 150 players in the age group between 11 and 19.
Paul Appiah was one of six players released by Aston Villa this summer and he is currently seeking a chance to continue his progress at Leicester. From the past we have seen Lewis Brunt joining from Aston Villa after a similar situation last season .
The two might see their chances going forward in a more development environment but still to get the chance to show their presence in a game like this must have been encouraging.
