Brentford have signed Fin Stevens from Worthing.
The 17-year-old full-back/midfielder joins the west Londoners on a two-year contract with a club option of a one-year extension.
A debutant for Worthing at 16, Stevens will link up with Neil MacFarlane’s Brentford B team.
MacFarlane told Brentford’s website: “Fin is somebody with a very good character and I believe that he’ll be good for the dressing room.
“He has been playing men’s football at the age of 16, which is fantastic, and that will have given him a lot of good experience.”
