Accrington Stanley sign keeper Ben Wilson on short-term deal

League Two side Accrington have signed ex-Sunderland goalkeeper Ben Wilson.

The 21-year-old was released by the Black Cats in the summer and had agreed non-contract terms with Conference Premier outfit Cambridge United.

However, after a week-long trial at the Store First Stadium, Wilson has now linked up with James Beattie's Stanley.

He was an unused substitute as Accrington lost 1-0 at home to Cheltenham on Saturday, a result that leaves the club bottom of the table.
