Stourbridge FA Cup goal hero Dan Scarr lands trial with West Bromwich Albion

Dudley | Sport | Published:

Dan Scarr celebrated his FA Cup third-round goal for Stourbridge by going on trial with West Bromwich Albion this week.

The 22-year-old defender netted his side's equaliser before they valiantly went down 2-1 at League Two Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday in front of more than 2,000 Glassboys supporters.

And the centre-half – who has forged a strong partnership with Jack Duggan for Gary Hackett's men three levels below the Football League – has been attracting plenty of attention after impressing for Stourbridge in 83 appearances since signing from Redditch United in the summer of 2015.

Boss Hackett said: "We've had enquiries about Dan from a number of clubs, and West Brom have asked to take a look at him. He's gone over there with our blessing and we'll see what develops. The ball is in their court.

"Dan is under contract with us at the present time, but I'd like to think we wouldn't stand in the way of any player progressing.

"Dan's been playing really well lately and it's no surprise one or two people are taking notice."

Scarr, who has bagged 11 goals for the Glassboys, has been training with the first-team squad at Albion and was expected to remain there until tomorrow.

Meanwhile, Evo-Stik Premier rivals Halesowen Town have had hotshot striker Kaiman Anderson recalled by League One Shrewsbury Town. Anderson plundered 18 goals for the Yeltz this term.
