Beckham Tryouts

Galaxy search for unknowns to play with Beckham

LOS ANGELES, Jan 17 (Reuters) - A week after signing David Beckham, perhaps the world's most famous soccer player, the Los Angeles Galaxy turned to the unknown on Wednesday announcing the MLS team would hold open trials.

For $130 would-be players will be given the opportunity to earn a spot on the squad alongside Beckham, who signed a five-year deal last Thursday that could net the former England captain $250 million.

The trials, which will be overseen by Galaxy head coach Frank Yallop, will be held on Feb. 10 at the Galaxy's home stadium in Carson with select players advancing to the second round the following day.

Open trials, known as tryouts, are not uncommon in North American professional sports and occasionally unearth a rare talent. Vince Papale, a 30-year old bartender attended an open tryout for the Philadelphia Eagles and made the team becoming the oldest rookie in NFL history.

Papale's story was made into a Hollywood movie.
