Polish Kids Offered A Chance With Dundee United

Dundee United are hoping to capitilize on the influx of migrants into the city, by offering trials to Polish youngsters this weekend.

Uunder-16 Polish youngsters are being invited to an exclusive training session, as Dundee United attempt to unearth another gem like Grzegorz Szamotulski.

Former International Szamotulski has been in inspired form since joining United on a 6-month short-term deal in the summer, but is set to leave Tannadice when his deal expires at the end of December.

The Polish community in the city is currently estimated to be around 20,000 in number and Graeme Liveston, head of Youth Development, is keen to build ties between the Polish community and Dundee United.

'We'd like to invite all Polish kids to come along on December 15 to train with us," admitted Liveston to the Press and Journal.

'The idea actually came about because of another project we have going in Glasgow with the refugee community. There we have signed a lad from Rwanda and another from the Ivory Coast so we thought that because Tayside has such a vibrant Polish community we'd give this a go as well."

'We're hoping for a good turn out and even if we manage to find one player through this scheme it will be worthwhile. The fact we have two Polish players in the first-team squad is also a factor because the club has good links with the country."

'The club would love to make a stronger association with the Polish people who are living over here.'
