Stevenage to seal Ball deal

Former Norwich City defender earns himself a contract after successful trial spell

Stevenage expect to seal the signature of Matt Ball today.

The midfielder has been on trial at Boro and impressed in the second half of the match against Tottenham Hotspur last night (Wednesday) as Boro lost 2-0.

The former Norwich City youth product had a spell at Macclesfield Town last season but had been looking for a new club after being released by the Canaries this summer.

Speaking about Ball after last night’s match, Stevenage boss Gary Smith said: “The deal, I believe, will be signed in the morning. He’s impressed throughout the pre-season.

“In terms of additions to the group he’s probably an individual who has more future to it as a young player out of the Norwich system. There’s some nice technical ability there and I think he’s somebody I think we can work with and add some qualities too.”
