Aldershot Town manager Danny Searle insists he will be judging Chris Zebroski on his behaviour and performance during his trial – not on anything the former Millwall, Wycombe Wanderers and Bristol Rovers striker might have done in the past.
Zebroski served time in prison for robbery and assault in 2015 and was mostly recently in the news last month after his wife aired her upset on Twitter after allegedly being cheated on by the 31-year-old footballer. Meanwhile, disciplinary issues resulted in Plymouth Argyle and Cheltenham Town terminating his contract.
But Searle is adamant that Zebroski, who netted for Aldershot in their pre-season friendly win over Badshot Lea on Saturday, should have a clean slate.
“Chris has come in and he’s worked hard in training,” Searle said. “We are still in talks with him and his representative.”
“Chris is a great lad. It has been well documented that there are some issues he’s had in the past but he’s a human being at the end of the day and he has been nothing but exemplary.”
