2/18/2010: Trailist Update- 3 Dumped, 1 Stays, & 1 Joins

New Mexican-American trialist Jose Carlos Diaz in a league match for W. Connection.

Former Cracovia Krakow 25 year old striker Kamil Witkowski and former Monterrey Mexican League prospect- the 18 year old Doudou Toure, both have failed to receive an extended stay with the Crew past Brandenton. Further, former OSU and FC Dallas keeper Ray Burse looks unlikely as well to continue trialing for the team once the Crew head to Arizona. Only one of the current trialists will continue onward, and that's former Shaktar Donestk player Yevhen Brudun, who has been with the team on trial since the first days of camp (coming in with Venezuelan youngster Hugo Acosta who was also dumped).

One trialist will join Bredun in Arizona, and that is 22 year old Mexican-American striker Jose Carlos Diaz. Diaz doesn't exactly have the most impressive overall resume, he did however play for the Mexican national U-15 side ten times scoring five goals, and then the U.S. U-20's making three appearances with no goals. He then made the jump from the PDL to one of the most popular teams in Hungary, Ferencvaros, who had some trouble while Diaz was there but have secured a spot in the Hungarian top flight this year. However, Diaz didn't find any time on the field with Ferencvaros and was instead loaned out to Hungarian Third Division side Tokol KSK where he made six appearances scoring two goals. Figuring Hungaria wasn't the place for him, Diaz then transferred to W Connection in Trinidad & Tobago, Diaz has found some success there scoring 3 goals in 3 league appearances and also making multiple appearances with some goals in this past season's Champions League.

**I'll have a new Schelotto video with goals and assists from the last three years up sometime tonight or tomorrow.

  1. Sad to see they passed on Witkowski, he would have been a good addition to the Crew.
