The youngster will join from Bury Town in July, having played for the Bostik North side last season.

The 17-year-old came through the AFC Sudbury academy and has also spent time with the Blues’ academy in the past, but will now link up with the club on a two-year contract.

“Bryan Klug has watched Ross’ progress over the last year or so and he comes with Alan Lee’s backing as well,” Town’s general manager football operations, Lee O’Neill, told the club website.

“He’s raw and is learning the game but we will give him the platform to develop as a footballer.”

Town have a good relationship with Bury, with a string of players including current first-teamer Jack Lankester spending time on loan at the non-league club.
