Wolves Take Four On Trial

Last updated : 05 July 2002 By Steve Hermon
Wolves have welcomed four new faces to pre-season training, all of them on two week trials.

The most recognisable of the new faces is Former Crystal Palace and Coventry City defender Marc Edworthy. Edworthy, who could solve Wolves' search for a right back following Kevin Muscat's summer departure, is available on a free transfer after being released by the Sky Blues.

The other three players are not as recognised. The first, 20-year-old Simon Ford, arrives from Grimsby with a good reputation. He was their Young Player Of Year last season and even held the captain's armband for their final game of 2001/02 campaign. Ford is out of contract but because he is under-24, Wolves would have to pay some compensation.

The remaining two are Russel Howarth, a young keeper from York City and Tresor Luntala from Birmingham City. Howarth, a former England Youth International played a game for Wolves Reserves last season and has been invited back. If Wolves wish to sign him, he would also require a fee.

Luntala, was languishing in Blue's Reserves all last season, although he was on the bench when Birmingham played Wolves at Molinuex last year. Luntala, in his early twenties is under contract and Wolves would also have to pay for his services.
