Shuttleworth College student Bradley Knox is hoping to flourish at Wolverhampton Wanderers after signing a three-year contract.

The 14-year-old midfielder played for Ighten Leigh and Pendle Forest, before joining Accrington Stanley’s Centre of Excellent aged nine.

He was top-scorer every season at Stanley, scoring over 50 goals in one campaign, and, having been watched numerous times by Wolves, was invited to spend a week with them before Christmas, where he earned a three-year deal, the first two of which are a scholarship.

Bradley trains three days a week with the Under 18s and 16s, playing Saturday mornings against other Category 1 clubs.
