Scarborough Athletic’s top prospect Matty Bowman has agreed terms with Championship side Wigan Athletic.

The 17-year-old has signed forms that will allow him to play for Wigan’s Under-18 and Under-23 sides, but he will still be available to turn out for Boro in the Evo-Stik Premier and also his school side Repton.
