Centre-back Hutchinson, a regular in Birmingham's reserve team, spent a three-day spell at the Pirates' Cribbs Causeway training ground.

"We've had Graham in for training," Ward told the Bristol Evening Post. "He's out of contract in the summer and Birmingham have been good enough to let us have a look at him."

Meanwhile, Yate Town striker Scott Wilson will train with the League Two side again this week after impressing last week.

The former Bristol City trainee has scored 27 times this season and Ward admits it is vital they keep their eye on the non-league game for potential players.

"Scott did well," he said. "We've invited him back this week for another look.

"I didn't become a professional footballer until I was 19, so I fully recognise the fact that players can come in to the professional game a little bit later. A lot of players have the raw tools, and, if they are prepared to work hard, they can achieve."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
