Today's match against Portsmouth has seen a new trialist Curtis Ujah take to the field for the first time. Curtis was one of two trialists playing this afternoon, with former Swindon Town midfielder Ashan Holgate also taking to the field. Whilst Holgate was already known to be on trial at Huish Park (see July 4th news) this was the first that Ujah had been sighted within the camp.
Curtis was born on 22 July 1988 in Sheffield and is a central defender who was on the books of Tamworth at the tail end of last season. He joined Reading's Academy before signing a professional contract in Autumn 2006, joining Slough Town on loan shortly afterwards. However, he was released by Reading on 26th January 2007 without making a first team appearance, signing for Conference National side Tamworth on 22th March 2007.
Manager Russell Slade clearly thought enough of him in training to have him involved in the training camp at RAF Honington, as Ujah played in a midweek friendly against an RAF team. He played 21 minutes today in the centre of defence, partnering Terry Skiverton and has a strong physical presence in the way that he plays the game.
