Former youngsters from Tottenham and Chelsea are among seven players on trial with League Two side Carlisle United.
The club's pre-season began on Monday, and Carlisle's official website confirmed the presence of the new faces aiming to win contracts.
Among them is former Chelsea youngster Danny Pappoe, who was recently released by Brighton and Hove Albion after failing to break into the Seagulls' first team.
Pappoe, 21, is a Ghanaian youth international, who captained Chelsea at under-16 and under-18 level, before seeing his development lose momentum due to injuries. He is pictured above tackling Liverpool's Raheem Sterling in a reserve team fixture back in 2011.
The 19-year-old had previously spent time on loan with Bolton Wanderers but did not make a first team start.
They are joined by former Swansea City midfielder Corey Francis, Gethyn Hill, Joel Logan, Kevin Osei, and Kevin Farade.
Carlisle finished in 20th place in League Two last season and are hoping for far improved results next time around.
