Iron Starlet Sackey Signs for Club
Sheffield FC have made an impressive signing ahead of Saturday’s Evo-Stik Division One South opener at Carlton Town, by acquiring the signature of Scunthorpe United starlet Leslie Sackey, who joins the World’s First on a youth loan.
18-year-old Leslie signed a scholarship with Scunthorpe United in 2015 having joined from Reading’s Category 1 Academy. He signed for the Iron as a centre forward, but soon changed positions to centre half.
Having trained with the first team on numerous occasions during his scholarship, Leslie impressed manager Graham Alexander with his ability and as a result was rewarded with a professional contract in May 2017.
