    Liverpool offer non-league striker a trial

    Another example of how far Liverpool have fallen? Or a canny move for a future star?

    The Reds are set to offer non-league striker Daniel Carr a week-long trial after the 18-year-old scored 23 goal in 23 games for Dulwich Hamlet of then Ryman league south division.

    He has been tracked by several Premier League and Championship sides according to The Daily Mail but it seems Liverpool are set to make the first move in the race to sign the youngster.

    Speaking earlier this season, Hamlet boss Gavin Rose said: 'We'd like to hold onto our boys to give us the best chance of competing in the league, which is so tight.'If someone comes in for them at the end of the season then we would give them our blessing as a club.

    'It's the normal attention from clubs but we're trying not to focus on that and concentrate instead on the boy progressing.'

    Carr is currently plying his trade eight leagues below England’s top division so will be unlikely to slot straight into Brendan Rodgers first team, He has impressed watching Liverpool, scouts though so could be one for the future. At just 18 the young stirker would also fit well into the Red’s transfer policy of buying young and British and with no top flight experience will hardly break the bank.
