YOUTH team keeper George Sykes-Kenworthy has signed a two-year pro deal.

Midfield Callum Gunner, whose first season at Valley Parade has been dogged by injury, has added a one-season extension.

And the club have also snapped up teenage midfielder Cameron Hawkes following his departure from Sheffield United.

Head of recruitment Greg Abbott said: “These three deals are all about beginning to look towards next season and putting the plans in place.

“There are two levels of recruitment.

“You obviously have your first-team level recruitment, which we are on with now at this moment. And then there is recruitment behind that as well.

“This is where Callum, Cameron and George come in.”

Gunner joined City at the end of last season along with Omari Patrick and Tyrell Robinson. But he has only recently returned to action after three months out with a shoulder injury.
