GRAYS ATH­LETIC’S in­de­mand duo Dumebi Du­maka and Nathan Fer­gu­son look to be mov­ing closer to ful­fill­ing their Foot­ball League am­bi­tions – as could two more of Ilke­ston’s top teenagers.

Striker Du­maka, 21, scorer of 16 goals in 16 games in the Ry­man Premier, spent last week on trial at Cham­pi­onship side Ip­swich Town and is said to have im­pressed.

Bur­ton Al­bion, mean­while, are back in for 19-year-old mid­fielder Fer­gu­son, who has been on trial at Fleet­wood.

Premier League-chas­ing Brighton & Hove Al­bion are keep­ing a watch­ful eye over Ilke­ston’s 17-year-old cen­tral de­fender Jor­dan Wheat­ley.

Robins’ Rhys Dolan, 17, is also on the radar for clubs, with shock Cham­pi­ons League con­tenders Le­ices­ter City watch­ing the left-back’s de­vel­op­ment. Ilke­ston sold striker Che Adams to Sh­effield United last sea­son.
