Kaid Nets Wrexham Trial

<1>Carmarthen Town striker Kaid Mohamed has netted himself a trial at Wrexham. The Old Gold hotshot, who is best known for netting a tremendous Welsh Cup winning brace in last season's final against Afan Lido, has been given an opportunity by Dragons boss, Brian Carey.

Mohamed, was a revelation at Richmond Park last year after an unsuccessful spell at Llanelli, and the 22-year-old is certainly quick and strong enough to make the step up. He bagged fifteen goals in thirty games last term, so his eye for goal means that he has every chance of earning a second professional contract. His first came at Stebonheath, but he failed to make an impact at the Reds, before his former Carmarthen boss, Mark Jones handed him an escape to Richmond Park.

And Jones belives he has every chance of making it in the Football League as he told us,

"Kaid is an athlete and is still young. He did brilliant for Carmarthen last year and I've got a video of about sixteen goals he scored and none of them would look out of place in the Championship."

The former Town boss who won the Welsh Cup last year is still a strong advocate for the League and he added,

"I hope he takes his chance, because it would further enhance our League's reputation."

Mohamed started his senior career at local Welsh League side Ely Rangers, before he caught the eye of Brian Coyne at Cwmbran Town. He joined the Crows in 2003 before he went to Llanelli (and back) and then on to Llanelli again. At his three Welsh Premier League clubs, he has struck 32 league goals in just over 100 appearances. His record at his current side is certainly his most impressive though and he was unlucky to miss out on a first call up to the Wales Semi Professional side in May.

I hope he takes his chance, because it would further enhance our League's reputation.

Mohamed told Wrexham's Official Website,

"My contract with Carmarthen is up and although the club is preparing for their UEFA Cup ties, I wanted to see if I could make the most of this opportunity," after he arrived by train from Cardiff.

"I was a full time player with Llanelli and would like to see if I can earn myself a deal with Wrexham.

"Carmarthen manager Deryn Brace has phoned me to wish me luck and assures me there was still a place for me with them if things don't work out." Brace himself spent many years at Wrexham and realises that the opportunity for the youngster is too good an opportunity to turn down. If things don't work out though, the Old Gold would love to name him in their UEFA Cup squad, which must be submitted on the 5th of July.

There is an opportunity to register 24 hours before the game though, so realistically, Brace would probably be willing to hold on until 18th July for his star striker. His loss would undoubtedly be a huge blow for the West Walians, who have a huge task ahead of them in their first ever UEFA game at their Richmond Park home against Danish side, Brann. Town did confirm with the FAW, the registrations of ex Llanelli wideman, Nicky Palmer and former Merthyr duo Gareth Wharton and Neil Smothers today, whilst key-players such as Kris and Neil Thomas, Paul Fowler, Tom Ramasut and Nathan Cotterrall all re-signed for Town today.

Wrexham already have a number of Welsh Premier links after capturing Steve Evans from TNS last season and also Rhyl's Conall Murtagh last month. They also have the League's former Golden Boot winner Eifion Williams, who links up this season, after years at Hartlepool and Torquay. Williams played at Caernarfon Town in the League before Barry Town signed him, prior to his switch to the Football League.
