Guernsey FC midfielder Alex Scott is to join Bristol City following a trial with the Robins.
The 16-year-old, who on his senior debut in August became the Green Lions’ youngest ever player, has signed a pre-contract agreement and will continue his football development and academic education in City’s academy structure.
Bristol City academy manager Gary Probert, who met Alex and his family, along with City loans manager Brian Tinnion, in Guernsey this week, said: “During the period of us watching Alex and him training and playing with us he has demonstrated some excellent attributes and potential to further develop in the years ahead.
“Most importantly, he has the personality and mindset to fit in at Bristol City to continue to work hard and continue his development. Credit must go to Alex’s parents for being open to and contributing to the development plan we have for their son, and to Tony Vance of Guernsey FC for his help in supporting Alex in this important decision, which will not only benefit Alex but further our links with football in Guernsey.”
