Mark Shaw believes he might have found a ‘diamond in the rough’ in the form of a teenage defender.

Tigers have signed 18-year-old central defender Macole Lannaman from Espial FC.

The youngster spent two years with Sheffield Wednesdayas a junior before moving on to Chesterfield where he spent two and half years.

Shaw said: “He could be a bit of a diamond.”

“He’s 5ft 11ins but I think he might grow to 6ft 1ins or 6ft 2ins.”

Lannaman may feature in the League Cup in January.
