The St Ives Town striker was due to start his three-day trial at London Road today (Wednesday) after visiting Cambridges R Costings Abbey Stadium and Dagenhams Victoria Park at the end of last week. On the visits, which took place on Thursday and Friday, Washington was accompanied by St Ives joint manager Jez Hall and experienced former professional Junior McDougald, a forward with whom he struck up a dynamic partnership during the season. Talking exclusively to The Hunts Post, Washington who is a postman in St Ives said: Both of the visits were really promising both clubs have a reputation for developing young players and helping them fulfil their dreams. Thats important. But I am excited about going to Peterborough its a big step, but it would be silly not to give it a real go. Its going to be interesting gauging myself against the players they have there. Washingtons trial is due to finish on Friday, his 20th birthday. He will be given time to think through his options. Both League One side Dagenham and the closer-to-home Cambridge of the Blue Square Bet Premier Division have indicated they are interested in signing him but Hall has indicated the club will give the player all the time he needs to make his decision. Hall told The Hunts Post: Dagenham and Cambridge have made it clear that they want him but we will not be rushing the lad. We had a couple of positive days and at Dagenham we met John Still and his assistant Terry Harris and they were really nice blokes. I was impressed with what they had to say. I know Jez George at Cambridge anyway hes a great bloke. I think Conor might be feeling a bit overwhelmed at the minute. But its all about what he wants to do and what is right for him. Washington, who still has a year left on his current contract with St Ives, ended the season the United Counties Premier Divisions top goalscorer after finishing the campaign with a fine hat-trick in the clubs 4-1 UCL League Cup win over Kings Lynn Town at Yaxley. In 50 games, the striker scored 52 goals. He is certainly a popular figure in the dressing, his teammates voted him players player of the season at the clubs presentation night on Saturday.
