Don Cowan: Will hope to impress in Spain

Midfielder Clifford, 21, was released by Leicester at the end of last season, while 23-year-old striker Cowan has been without a club since leaving Dundee.

Bothmen have been on trial at Roots Hall will feature in the Shrimpers' friendly against Real Madrid C.

"Don has done well since he's been here and it will be good to have a further look at him in Madrid. He'll play some part in the game and we'll watch how he gets on in the training sessions," boss Phil Brown told the club's official website.

However, fellow trialists Josh Rees, Mark Carrington, Marvin Wijks and Dan Fitchett will not make the trip to the Spanish capital.

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
