Blessed Trinity Roman Catholic College Head Boy Kasom Shah has signed scholarship terms with Accrington Stanley.

The defender, 15, has been at the League Two club since he was 12-years-old and has impressed the scouts.

He recently played for the Under 18s in their FA Youth Cup win over Wrexham and was on the bench as they defeated Morecambe to make it through to the third round of the prestigious competition.

“I am really pleased to secure a scholarship,” said Kasom. “My dream is to break into the first team.”
