WHITE UP FOR GUEUGNON AUDITION
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
RICH FIDLER - Wednesday, April 27, 2005
Former Wake Forest star Jeremiah White is traveling Europe in search of a new club this month, and is set to trial at French Ligue 2 club Gueugnon.

White spent the last few weeks training with FC Nordsjaelland of Denmark's Superligaen alongside former University of Portland star Heath Pearce, who joined the team this winter.

The 23-year old will now head south for a audition with the French club, who shocked the nation when they won the Coupe de la Ligue during the 1999/00 season.

"I was [training] with FC Nordsjaelland and they like me and have invited me back," the former ACC Player of the Year told YA. "But I had the prior arrangement to go to Gueugnon in France."

"They want to field the youngest team possible to make a run and possibly go up to Ligue 1 in a year or two."

"At this club, I would have the opportunity to come in and play right away, and they believe that in a year, I can be in Ligue 1."

White was last a member of B Ethniki Katigoria club Panserraikos, before being released by the Greek side in mid-January. He also played sparingly for Serbia's OFK Beograd during the 2004 season.

Gueugnon is located in the Sane & Loire valley in central France.

Les Forgerons have graduated numerous players to top European football leagues, most notably current Manchester City captain Sylvain Distin.
