Brett Whaley has boosted his attacking options for when his Wisbech Town side return from lockdown with a new winger.
Rodrigo Silva signed for the Fenmen from Northern Premier League (NPL) Premier Division outfit Grantham Town, where he has awarded a first-team contract last season.
Silva, 19, has featured for several clubs in his early career and also played for Peterborough United’s Futsal team.
“Rodrigo was recommended to us after really impressing in academy football, and his initial progression into men’s football,” Whaley said.
“He’s hugely talented and showed his ability when training with the squad before lockdown. I’m delighted to be able to agree terms with him and really excited about working with him.
