Forest Green announced the signing of teenage striker Jake Young from Premier League Sheffield United on a two-year deal during lockdown.

Huddersfield-born Young joined United in 2019 from non-league Guiseley after catching the eye of Blades’ Manager Chris Wilder in a first team behind closed doors game against Wigan.

Young played regularly for the Under-23s, scoring the winner on his debut against Birmingham City at St Andrew’s with his first touch.
