"I'm thrilled with the signing of Will, he is a player I have admired for a very long time and who I know will improve our squad both on and off the field," he said.

"He is a great leader for a young player and I think he will form a great partnership with the likes of Harry Coates, Bailey Gooda and Dylan Cogill.

"If Will continues to develop and improve I fully expect him to go on and play in the Football League, clearly I am hugely ambitious of progressing Scarborough Athletic up a level or two, but I don't actually think we will have Will with us for long if he continues to develop."
