Partick Thistle boss Jackie McNamara will run the rule over former Southampton youngster Jack Boyle during the pre-season training camp in England.
The Firhill side travel to the Catterick Garrison of the 1st Battalion Scots Guards in Yorkshire later this month as McNamara puts his squad through their paces ahead of the big kick-off.
Boyle spent the second half of last season with Zamaretto Premier side Salisbury City and will now be given the chance to win a move north.
The departure of Paddy Boyle to Dunfermline has left McNamara short of left-sided options. He has already recruited Johnny Lindsay from St Johnstone and is set to hand a trial to former Celtic youngster Kieran Brennan.
McNamara watched Brennan in action as the Hoops lifted the Scottish Youth Cup last season and will now give the attacking full-back the chance to impress during pre-season.
Any potential move for Montrose youngster Aaron Sinclair could rest on the Links Park club's compensation demands, however.
"We have a couple of guys coming in during pre-season on trial that we will have a look at," McNamara said.
"Jack Boyle is going to be joining us and we will have a look at him.
"Wingers are something that we don't have a lot of in the squad at the moment and it is important that we can change things about if we need to. I will have a look at him during pre-season, he will come down to England with us and we will see how he gets on.
"There are a couple more that we would like to bring in and have a look at. As far as finances go, we are limited in terms of what we can do at the moment. Left-back is a position we are looking at because we are still a bit short there."
Thistle will kick-off their pre-season preparations at a new base when they return from their summer holidays on June 27.
McNamara's side will use the facilities at Glasgow Green for next season and the Thistle boss hopes the move will benefit his squad.
"We are delighted to get a permanent base, it is fantastic for the club," McNamara said.
"We can go and coach the players and not have to worry about waiting for the bus or trying to arrange facilities at short notice.
"Hopefully we will be able to get more time with the players. There are good facilities down there so hopefully they will benefit us.
"It is important for the club as well. When you are trying to bring players to the club, it is better to have a base and somewhere regular to train rather than moving around all the time.
"Hopefully it will allow us to tempt people to the club and show the club in a good light."
