Harry Stevens and Ryan Coupland both started the game and excelled, with Stevens particularly earning high praise from Carpenter as well as watching spectators.

The youngster is a midfielder by trade but was asked to play right-back and did a fantastic job, looking comfortable at all times.

And the Robins boss admitted that if the players are happy to join, then he’d love to add them to his squad for the upcoming Hellenic Premier season.

“Both trialists did really well,” said Carpenter. “Stevens isn’t a natural right-back but you wouldn’t have guessed it and he played very well. He was playing with people he didn’t know, in a position he wasn’t sure of and come to the end of the game people were asking me who the right-back is, which is a testament to the lad.

“I kind of threw him into the lions’ den and he didn’t look out of place at all.” Carpetner was also full of praise for midfielder Coupland, who impressed during a previous spell at Larges Lane before leaving the club due to other commitments.

“He was here before and is looking to get back into football,” explained Carpenter.

“He caused problems when ever he had the ball and constantly looked dangerous.” Coupland played 67 minutes before being taken off, whilst Stevens completed the full 90 minutes in the 1-0 defeat at Cantley Park.

“They would both be good additions,” added the Robins boss. “I’ve spoken to Harry and he’s here to see where he fits in.

“They’re both the type of players we’re after as they’re the right age. They are young, enthusiastic lads so we’ll see what happens.”
