Rocastle gets second Hibs chance

Midfielder Craig Rocastle could win a second spell at Hibs after being invited for a trial.

The 26-year-old spent six months on loan at Easter Road from Chelsea in 2004 and is a free agent after being released by Port Vale.

Rocastle spent time with St Mirren this week and will train with the Edinburgh side for a few days next week.

"He did really well when he was here last time and it was a pity he left," said Hibs manager Mixu Paatelainen.

Rocastle chose to reject an offer to stay on at Hibs in January 2005, opting to join Sheffield Wednesday instead.

He has since spent a season at Oldham and with Port Vale, punctuated by loan spells at Yeovil and Gillingham.

"He is coming to train with us for a couple of days and we will see how that goes," added Paatelainen.
