Accrington Stanley have signed Northern Irish teenager Andrew Scott on a three-year deal.

The versatile 18-year-old, from Castlederg in County Tyrone, can play anywhere across the forward line and joins the Reds after being recommended to John Coleman and impressing on trial over the summer.

The youngster began playing football at hometown club Dergview, before joining Maiden City Academy as a 12-year-old.

The frontman has represented his nation at U17-level and joins Stanley subject to a medical and FA, EFL and international clearance.

“I am buzzing to be here,” said Scott. “It’s a different standard to what I’m used to.

“I’m absolutely delighted to have signed, and I can’t wait to get started.

“I’ll take every day as it comes, every training session, work my way up and hopefully I’ll get on the pitch soon.”

Scott becomes Stanley’s sixth signing of the summer, alongside Will Wood, Piero Mingoia, Sam Finley, Offrande Zanzala and Matthew Platt.

Manager Coleman said: “He is promising player. He came over on trial and impressed us.

“He has got a good attitude and he is the type of player who we want at the club – hungry and young.

“He is a livewire, he is sharp and a real fox in the box.”
