New signing Marshall Willock ‘can’t wait’ to start life at the Proact, after making the switch from Solihull Moors, subject to a medical.

The 17-year old defender had been playing on loan at Midland League outfit Bromsgrove, before impressing in a practice match at Northampton Town on Monday, which prompted the club to negotiate a two-year deal.

Willock said: “I’m delighted to move here, it’s a great opportunity to develop and further my career.

“It was surreal playing on Monday, I fitted straight in with the lads and played well.”

Standing at 6’4, Willock describes himself as ‘good in the air and athletic’, as well as being a ‘good defender’.

Willock will train with the first team for the first time on Monday, further enhancing his experience of senior football.

The young defender was promoted to the Solihull first team in March along with four other youngsters, with manager Liam McDonald stating that ‘if they are good enough they are old enough’.

In his younger years, Willock had trialled with Birmingham City and Scunthorpe United, and turned down a trial at Grimsby Town to stay with Moors.
