In-form youth team striker Colby Bishop has earned a scholarship with Notts County Football Club after an impressive trial.
Bishop has scored a remarkable nine goals in four appearances for the youth team.
The goals have seen the young Magpies put together a run of four consecutive wins and climb to sixth in the North East Youth Alliance.
Academy manager Mick Leonard was full of praise for the promising young striker and believes he can continue to improve as a full-time scholar.
He told the official site: “Colby was only training with us one day a week before so he now needs to work on his fitness and get up to speed.
“He’s a good lad who works hard and he fully deserves to join us because he has made a big difference to us as a team and his stats speak volumes.
“If he applies himself correctly, things can only get better for him.”
