Durr leaves the Jacks for overseas trials

Posted on August 12, 2016 in 'News'

ECU Joondalup midfielder Henry Durr has left the club, and headed overseas for trials at clubs in the UK.

The 21-year-old joined the club from Perth Glory at the start of the season, has been outstanding as the Jacks pressed for a finals spot this season.

He’s been training with Macclesfield Town since Wednesday, and he also has trials pending with Partick Thistle and Motherwell in the Scottish Premier league and St Mirren in the Championship, everyone at the club wishes him all the best.

Coach Dale McCulloch said it’s a shame to lose the lively midfielder, but wished him all the best. “Henry has been great for us ever since he return from the Glory,” he said. “He has a great engine and his attitude has been fantastic, and has filled in at right back for some games when needed, so he will be a huge loss but we wish him all the best.”

McCulloch said it will give someone else the opportunity to impress and cement a spot in the side. “We have some talented young players at our club, and this will give someone the opportunity to show me they are ready to fill the role,” he said.

“Our under 18’s and 20’s are both having good season’s and the last two games all three teams have won, so it shows we have depth coming up through the ranks, and our academy sides once again have been very impressive.”
