Hebburn Town forward Cedwyn Scott has earned a move to the EFL with Carlisle United.

The 22-year-old has signed for the League Two club following a spell on trial.

Scott has agreed a deal with the Cumbrians until the end of the season.

The former Huddersfield Town and Dundee youngster netted 22 goals in 17 games this season for Hebburn, leading to a trial with Newcastle United for a month.

It is Carlisle, though, who have signed him, and manager Chris Beech told their website:

“Honesty, hard work, determination, effort and endeavour – that’s Cedwyn. He’s been with us for just over a month now, he’s played in a reserve game against Rochdale, done well and scored a couple of goals.

“Ideally I wanted to see him in another game, and both Ced and Hebburn Town agreed to do that, but I’ve seen enough in training to want to give him an opportunity. He’s done very well, he works tirelessly and he’s hungry to be a success.

“It’s important to give some kudos to the guys at Hebburn Town too, because they were supportive of helping him kick on. Sometimes that doesn’t happen, but they’ve been great.”
