Portmore’s Satchwell could sign with Austrian club
Portmore United attacker Shakeon Satchwell has revealed that his recent trial stint in Austria was a successful one and he now expects to sign with an Austrian Bundesliga club in a few weeks.
The former St Andrew Technical High star said his stint their took him to two teams in the European country. He declined to disclose the names of the clubs but said that a couple of days into his trial with the second club, the coaching staff loved what he had to offer.
The 20-year-old said he will be returning in a few weeks to finalise details.
"I did very well over there with two teams. At the first team I think I did very well. Then I went to another team and after two days the coaches there liked what they saw," he said.
He now expects to put pen to paper with the club on his return there.
"I will be back there in a few weeks time. I am going to sign for the second team I guess," he said.
Satchwell scored 14 goals to help St Andrew Technical to the Manning Cup final last year. They lost on penalties to many-time champions Jamaica College. The lively attacker who scored in the 1-1 draw in the final is looking to take the opportunity in Europe with both hands if it does come his way.
"Yes, I am looking forward to it and I am looking to do my best," he said.
The player returned from his month-long trip to Austria just in time for the Lynk Cup National knockout final last Friday, in which he had a stellar game and the title was a massive boost for Satchwell and the team.
"This win gives everyone confidence. I wish Portmore had this confidence in the Jamaica Premier League. It is my first senior trophy but not my first trophy overall. But it's great to be back and have a trophy," he beamed.
