Kevin Wilson, manager of Vanarama National League North club Nuneaton Town, has added another new face to his squad with the signing of Iwan Cartwright on a one-year deal.

The 19-year-old central midfielder was released by National League side Wrexham at the nuneatonend of last season and joins Boro after impressing Wilson, who said: “I saw Iwan play in an exit trial game back in May and he was invited to come and train with us as a result. Obviously that went well and the deal was done quickly.

“Iwan is under no pressure here. He has potential and will be given time to develop. A run of senior football is exactly what his career needs and we will benefit from that.”

Cartwright joined Wrexham as a ten-year-old and worked his way through the ranks to earn a one-year professional contract before eventually being released. He said; “I was looking to stay in the full-time game and continue learning so Nuneaton is a perfect fit for me.

“I will be moving to the area so that I can focus purely on my football and make the most of this opportunity. I know a little bit about Nuneaton having chatted to Kevin Wilkin when I was at Wrexham. He spoke very highly of the club and I had no hesitation in joining.

“I know that the gaffer likes to get the ball down and play and that will suit me. I consider myself to be technically good with a work rate to match and I am looking forward showing the fans what I can do”.
