Academy manager Jack Lester said: "We are delighted to add Callum and Ta'Shae to the group and we're confident we can further their development in the coming months.

"We've had to move quickly to secure the signatures of both boys as there was interest in them from elsewhere, but luckily for us they saw their immediate futures here and now we want to work hard to improve them as players."
