T&T and bmobile Joe Public’s Kerry Baptiste will now leave for his one-week trial with English Championship Division club, Ipswich Town on February 10, according to the club’s Managing Director, Darryl Warner.
The 28-year-old Baptiste was due to leave on Sunday last for his trial at the club with the view to a possible loan deal, however the freezing weather in England which forced the postponement of a number of football league matches forced the trials to be pushed back.
Warner said yesterday, “Kerry will be leaving on February 10 and returning home on February 19 from his trial at Ipswich. We have been in contact with their club officials who have informed us that with the freezing weather most clubs are having their training sessions indoors.
“This would have made it difficult for Kerry to get a fair assessment of his ability so they expected that by the second week in February the weather will be much better and he would be able to get in a few matches outdoors to impress their coaching staff.”
During the 2009 Pro League, Baptiste scored a record 48 goals while captaining the club to a historic five titles locally including the league and FA.
