SCOTTISH AMATEUR FOOTBALL NEWS EXCLUSIVE
David Magliari is hoping the experience of playing against Italian professional adult and semi-professional youth teams will help him secure a signing offer with a Scottish non-league club. The Milan-based 21-year-old goalkeeper is set for a study course in Dundee and in our first exclusive coming from outside Scotland he told me.
“I have already tried to contact all the junior and amateur teams in Dundee, but got no response so far. The only team that answered my messages was Lochee United AFC, so overall I am still looking around.”
“I am moving to Scotland. Most likely Lochee.. I am 6 ft 3 one tall, and have been playing constantly as a goalkeeper from around 7/8 to 18 years old. I broke my hand three years ago but I have fully recovered. Since I don’t have a club here because I am moving, I have been playing 5s andc7s to keep me ticking over in preparation for 11 a side football.”
“I played for the youth teams of Crespi Morbio ASD (currently Crespi 2017), playing in Terza Categoria Milano Giron’s D. Garibaldina 1932, (Prima Categoria Lombardi’s Girone L) and Sempione Half, who have a partnership with Serie B side Chievo Verona.”
“I was also the second goalkeeper for Sempione Hallf’s first team in Italy’s 7th football tier. It was a great experience playing in local tournaments against both semi professional adult teams, and youth pro teams notably Milan, Inter and Atalanta.”
“Just now I would probably need to train for some weeks before being ” match ready, but I do not mind training and / or being the second choice goalkeeper. My goal is to help the team I play for in any way I can. I have plenty of experience and honestly any amateur/ junior team around Dundee would be ideal.”
“Initially, I am looking for a place I can train, play, meet new people and friends, and help the team achieve its goals. I don’t know how it works in Scotland, but I would do everything for nothing. No money involved. I do not have a car, so I am limited to Dundee and surroundings.”
David Magliari would welcome any genuine approaches from interested managers and clubs. Email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
