Defender Jasmin Mecinovik along with Nigerian winger Efosa Ona showed up to trial on Thursday with Vålerenga.  The manager of the club, Martin Andresen, stated the following, “Both players should be included in the squad for Saturday’s friendly against FC København so we will have the chance to watch each player in both training and also during a game.  Afterwards, we will assess each player’s performance and make a decision whether they will travel with our team to Spain for winter preparations.  If they perform well, then we would consider signing them.”

Mecinovik joined Moldovan club Sheriff in the 2011 January transfer window from FK Skopje but did not see much playing time for the club.  This past summer, Jasmin was loaned out to FC Tiraspol with the hopes of receiving consistent playing time but he only made one league appearance.   Mecinovik has been a regular member of the Macedonian U21 national team and a usual starter at one of the CB positions where Jasmin was partnered by Goran Bogdanovik.  However, in the last friendly against the Italy U20 national team, manager Boban Babunski started Bogdanovik and Kire Ristevski at CB with Mecinovik playing the 2nd half, where he replaced Ristevski, in the 2:2 draw.
