A FORMER Serie A goalkeeper could be making his way to Aylesbury FC as manager Mark Eaton confirms talks are taking place.

Cascone Vincenzo, who made his name at Roma, has a trial at the club this week and if successful Eaton will be looking to get international clearance for him.

Eaton said: “We are looking at him and are in talks about bringing him to the club, but we need to get an international clearance before he can join.”

Vincenzo spent five years at Roma as a youngster, making three appearances and since then has been involved in Serie C.

The 28-year-old played at US Podenza last season and has come available after the club went bankrupt.

And his record in Serie C makes for impressive reading, having played times and only conceding 58 goals.

FC’s need for a goalkeeper has come after former first choice Dean Bull was called back to his parent club of Biggleswade Town.

This left Eaton in a desperate search for his replacement and for the short term, Aaron Bufton has been drafted into the squad.

Bufton was the understudy at the club last season and has impressed with his performances so far, having only conceded one goal.

And whatever happens he will continue between the sticks for this weekend’s match against Ashford Town as the potential deal for Vincenzo will not go through in time.

FC go into Saturday’s match in great form having won three of the last four games but Eaton is warning his side not to get carried away.

He said: “I think the important thing is we do not get carried away.

“We cannot go into any matches thinking it will be easy, instead we have to keep showing the determination that has got us to where we are.”

The manager is in no doubt about the task at hand on Saturday, having already lost twice to Ashford this season.

He said: “They are one of the best sides we have played against so it will be a really tough game.

“We are going to go there to get a result but we will have to be at our best.”
