Scunthorpe United is delighted to have completed the signing of defender Jai Rowe.
The 17-year-old, who’s been on non-contract terms at non-league side Barwell, pens a two-year deal with the Iron.
The Nuneaton-based right-back, who can also play in midfield, joins United as another promising young player and will link up with Russ Wilcox’s Under-23s squad going forward.
Rowe, who has scored three goals in 30 league appearances for Barwell this season, has played two trial games for the Iron in recent weeks. Firstly, he played the full encounter against a strong Rotherham United XI back in February, which finished 2-2, while he more recently played an hour in the 9-1 victory over RIASA Showcase.
