Boro have captured the signature of attacking wide man Jeremy Sivi on a professional contract.

The club beat off the interest of clubs around Europe to sign the 18-year-old after he impressed during a trial period.

Sivi, who was with the Onside Football Academy in London, trained at Rockliffe towards the end of the season and made his debut for our Under-23s at Crystal Palace in the PL2.

His previous professional experience came as a youngster with Leyton Orient, while he also played with Harlow Town.
