Dons cast eye over three

Aberdeen manager Craig Brown has handed trials to three players as he steps up his attempts to strengthen his squad.

Cameroon striker Patrick Bengondo, 29, and 21-year-old defender Jason Beardsley - a graduate of the Derby County youth academy - were at Pittodrie today.

They were joined by goalkeeper Matthew Jones, 25, who came through the soccer college system in the United States before spending the last two seasons with Portuguese side Santa Clara.
