Reds have completed the signing of goalkeeper Alfie Jones following his release by MK Dons.
The 18-year-old was a regular in MK’s under-18 team and although he did not make a first-team appearance he was highly regarded at Stadium MK. He has signed a two-year contract subject to EFL approval.
Assistant Head Coach Edu Rubio said: “I know Alfie from my time working at MK Dons and he is a really promising young goalkeeper.
“This is an opportunity for him to develop his career and we definitely see him as one for the future. He will learn a lot working with Glenn (Morris) and (goalkeeping coach) Dean Lightwood and he is coming her to put our other goalkeepers under pressure.”
Alfie, pictured with Operations Director Kelly Derham, has been given squad number 42.
