Leicester City handed a run-out to two trialists as they lost to Notts County in their first pre-season friendly of the summer.
One of the trialists was Deniche Hill as he enjoyed the run-out as part of the youthful second-half side fielded by Brendan Rodgers, a period during which Aden Baldwin scored the winner for the National League visitors. Hill has been training with the club over the first couple of weeks of pre-season, but this was his first opportunity to show the club how he performed in matches.
Hill is being looked at as potential recruit for City's development squad as they look to bolster their ranks ahead of the new Premier League 2 season. This term, the age limit of the competition is coming down from under-23 to under-21.
Hill, emerged from a slightly more unusual route. Already a full international for the Caribbean island of Bermuda, the left-back has emerged from the academy at Brooke House College in Market Harborough.
An international boarding school, Brooke House College has had a football academy since 2008 and it is currently overseen by the technical director Micky Adams, the former City manager. Hill is one of a number of young players who have moved from Bermuda to attend college.
Hill has already made good progress internationally. After representing Bermuda in the CONCACAF Under-20 Championship qualifying last autumn, he got his senior debut for his country in June, playing in a goalless draw with Haiti.
