Most of the details on the two-day trial Omar Daley is currently undergoing with the San Jose Earthquakes can be found at Center Line Soccer, but some additional information is worth mentioning here. The Jamaican international is coming off a fairly decent Gold Cup performance that saw the 30-year old make three appearances and score one goal. Capping off the Reggae Boyz' 4-0 first round victory over Grenada, the strike was the seventh career goal for Daley as a member of Team Jamaica.
The midfielder made a decent impression on his first day training with the Earthquakes. during a full-field 11 v. 11 scrimmage, Daley showed off his pace on the right wing and had a couple chance to send in crosses from the touchline. In finishing drills, the Jamaican had a fairly average outing, save for one nice left-footed volley that left Quakes 'keeper David Bingham grasping at air. Daley will train with the team again on Friday, but there is no word on what is next for the out-of-contract player. In the shade of the tunnel that leads to the Stanford Stadium locker rooms, Daley indicated that MLS is his first choice destination for his next playing opportunity.
