While our league play is coming to an end, we will continue to play friendlies with Division 3 & 4 teams to make sure we finish the season strongly. MUFC have also created real opportunities for our players, 17-year-old Jacob Labovitz is half way through a month trial in Hungary; Jacob had this to say about his experience so far:
“I played for 2 weeks with Ujpest FC reserves and U19’s which was a great experience and the training was attacking oriented and keeping the ball in the final 3rd.
This week I played with Debretsen SC with their U19, third team and reserves. This was a whole new level. I definitely got better here and in Ujpest FC. I played with players who had played in champions league and were towards the end of the career on the reserve team.
Next week I try out for Bodaorsi FC first team and that is just a pro team. They don’t have an academy. And they are second division while the other two clubs were first division.”
