Yam (17) grew up in the Newcastle United youth set up, before starting his scholarship with the Blades last summer. Making an instant impression in their U18s. He went on to make his U21 debut before the season was out, continuing to make impressive progress. Now, the agile shot stopper comes to the Kal Group Stadium, looking to impress further. And he certainly comes highly recommended. Current Alfreton Town Goalkeeper/ Sheffield United 'keeper coach, George Willis & former professional turned respected coach John Vaughan, were complimentary in their praise, as boss Russ Wilcox disclosed,

"First and foremost, I would like to thank Sheffield United for their help, I played with John Vaughan at Preston, and he has been so helpful and supportive. Callum is a young lad, but both John & George have said nothing but good things about him. I trust their judgement to the hilt. And having two good recommendations from outstanding coaches and a current number one are a fantastic endorsement, both for him & us."

May we all welcome Callum to the football club. And wish him a successful time at Gainsborough!

Player of the Month

Dylan Wharton scooped the MKS Groundcare Supporters' Player of the Month for August, when voting was held at the end of the opening month of the Season. Having made a string of fine saves & keeping two clean sheets in the opening month of the season, Dylan has made a positive impact in his time at the club, so far.

We all wish Dylan a speedy recovery from injury & hope to see him donning the gloves again, in no time at all!
