Ex-Birmingham City striker Deqwon Ebanks joins Tamworth

Dale Belford

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."
