Crawley Town have signed Hendon winger Ashley Nathaniel George after he impressed club scouts at Jamie Vardy’s V9 Academy.

The 23-year-old scored 17 goals in 59 appearances for the Isthmian League Premier Division side last season.

Crawley director of football Selim Gaygusuz told the club website: ‘We have been tracking Ashley for a while.

Then we scouted him again at the Jamie Vardy Academy trials a couple of weeks ago. There were over 40 players there and Ashley stood out.

‘I know how keen he is to get started and the chance is there for him and it’s up to him to grab it.’

Nathaniel-George’s move is subject to English Football League ratification.

George is the first from this year’s V9 academy to agree a football league contract.
