Ex-Birmingham City striker Deqwon Ebanks joins Tamworth

Tamworth manager Dale Belford has made his first acquisition since taking charge of the Lambs by signing young striker Deqwon Ebanks.

The 18-year-old was previously on the books of Championship side Birmingham City, but failed to make a senior appearance for the club.

Following his release by Blues, he has agreed a one-year deal with the Lambs.

"I am really excited to sign my first professional contract," Ebanks told his sports agency's website. 

"The decision to sign for Tamworth, where I believe I can make a real impact and start off my first team career, was an easy one for me."
