Former Wizard has Trial

Back to some on the field news. Chris Konopka, who was waived by the Wizards at the end of the season has headed to England for a three week trial with English League One side, Walsall. This is actually Konopka's third trial. He had trials with Cardiff City and Charlton before signing with the Wizards last season. Neither one of those two trials had come through, because at the time Konopka did not have his Polish passport. He does now, though, which is better for his chances of making a team in England due to the EU standards. He also apparently has interest from IFK Göteborg and Örebro in Sweden and Legia Warsaw in Poland.

While with the Wizards this past season, Konopka played 135 minutes in 3 games for the Wizards reserves.
