Bateau on trial in Holland


Bateau on trials in HollandFormer San Juan Jabloteh defender Sheldon Bateau is currently in Amsterdam, Holland with trials set at three clubs during a two week period.

This was revealed by North East Stars head coach Angus Eve, who signed the 21 year old central defender ahead of the 2012-2013 TT Pro League season.

“We have Sheldon Bateau on a series of trials. Three teams in Holland to be exact,” said Eve. “And whichever one of the teams wants to take him, we would allow him the move because we are trying to develop players to move on.”

Bateau, who played for T&T various youth levels including the recent U23s, and at previous FIFA U17 and U20 World Cups, left Trinidad last Friday. Eve preferred not to name the clubs, but confirmed that they were all Amsterdam clubs. Eve is very familiar with Bateau having worked with the defender both at club and national levels.

Eve said that he is very hopeful Bateau would earn himself a contract.
