Recent Leeds United trialist Adam Drury scores on trial for Blackpool

The former Manchester City man has had similar spells with Leeds and Bradford.

Not many youngsters make it through the youth system into the first-team at Manchester City these days and one such player is Adam Drury.

The 21-year-old was released this summer after failing to make the progress expected of him at Eastlands.

The Grimsby lad, who can play at either right-wing or right-back, has been on loan at both Burton Albion and St Mirren in recent times but this summer has been struggling to find a new team.

One destination that did seem possible for a while was Leeds United. At the start of the month he joined the Yorkshire club on trial. He spent two weeks at Thorp Arch, featuring in a friendly game against York City.

However, when Leeds jetted off for their pre-season escapades in Austria and Norway, Drury was not on the plane.

After his Leeds disappointment he went on to join Bradford for a similar spell, featuring against Guiseley and scoring.

Now he is on trial at another new club, Blackpool.

It was confirmed by the Blackpool Gazette this morning that the player featured in a 2-2 draw with Morecambe in a behind closed doors friendly. He scored in the game and Blackpool are now considering signing the player.

The troubled Lancashire club were relegated from the Championship last season after a dismal campaign on and off the pitch.

Drury will hope to be given the chance to help the club get back on their feet, as they help him get back on his.
