Former Norwich City academy youngster Matt Ball is poised to join League One club Stevenage.

The midfielder had been training with Borough and impressed in the second half of a trial match against a Tottenham XI earlier this week, which Stevenage lost 2-0.

Ball had a loan spell at Macclesfield Town last season, but was released by ex-Canaries’ boss Paul Lambert this summer along with the likes of Aaron Wilbraham and Zak Whitbread.

Stevenage boss Gary Smith believes the Northern Ireland youth international will be a useful signing.

He said: “There’s some nice technical ability there and I think he’s somebody I think we can work with and add some qualities too.”

  • Why did PL not go to AV sooner or at least not let anyone go before he went?

  • I wonder if one of our academy products will ever make the breakthrough to the big time? Korey got close - still time for him? Tom Acadeyemi, maybe? Good luck to Matt. A few people thought he might make it with us, but hey-ho.

  • I thought he had a touch of Eadie about him, but as bit more willingness to attack the box. Instinctive finisher.We might regret letting Matt go (but what do I know - I thought Chris Llewelyn was good)
