CARSON, Calif. (AP) — The L.A. Galaxy’s reserve team will hold open tryouts in England this summer in an attempt to find overlooked talent for the Major League Soccer franchise.
The LA Galaxy II announced the tryouts Wednesday.
Players between 16 and 25 years old will be welcomed in London on May 31 and June 1 and in Manchester on June 3-4. At least five players from each city will be selected and flown to the Galaxy’s training complex in suburban Los Angeles for another week of trials.
Former England captain David Beckham leads a long list of prominent European talent that has suited up for the five-time MLS champion Galaxy.
Among the club’s English players, defender Ashley Cole is in his second season, while Steven Gerrard left the club last year.
