Wizards Trialists

In today's game against the US U-17 team, the Wizards had two trialists see action on the field. The first, a Hungarian trialist, is Ferenc Béres, who according to wikipedia plays for FC Tatabánya in the Hungarian second division. Béres scored 2 goals today in the game. Tatabánya was relegated at the end of last season to the second division. This season, Béres has 5 goals, leading the team as Tatabánya sit 4th in the table. So is this the player that Peter Vermes saw during his trip to Eastern Europe last year?

The other trialist was goalkeeper, Kevin Guppy, a free agent goalkeeper from Cal State Northridge played the last 30 minutes of the game today. This past year, Guppy was a first team All Big West selection. He finished the year with a 8-7-4 record and a 1.12 goals against average.

We'll see if either does well enough to make the roster.
