Crystal Palace Trials: Shaiam & Ruben
Wapping U16 players Shaiam and Ruben played in a showcase match for Crystal Palace.
This season, Shaiam has been deployed in a defensive role. He has been a vital player in the back four making decisive tackles and cutting out potential plays. His ability to play the ball forward from defence is impeccable, he has managed to claim 12 assists and 1 goal this season. Along side him in midfield, Ruben will be playing in the showcase match. Ruben has impressed everyone at Wapping and the ECHO League in his debut season. He has been influential this season, his ability to carry the ball forward is second to none combined with his ball distribution can be lethal that splits defences apart. Thus, he has had many Man of the Match performances this season.
Nahimul, Club Chairman said: "They have been exceptional this season, both players have a bright future ahead of them. I'm glad Crystal Palace have taken another one of our players on trial."
"Wapping are proud to be creating these opportunities for young players. The club aim to build good relationships with professional clubs going forward". He added.
