LEAGUE SCOUTS ON TRAIL OF TWO GEMS

The Football League Paper - - INSIDE: - By Sam El­liott

TWO more Non-League play­ers could be on the brink of big moves as the top end of the pro­fes­sional game con­tin­ues to study grass-roots for its stars of the fu­ture.

St Neots Town striker Je­vani Brown has been handed the op­por­tu­nity to earn a con­tract at Birm­ing­ham City.

The Championship club were cast­ing their eye over Brown last week after im­press­ing Blues scouts in the South­ern League Pre­mier Divi­sion this term.

The 22-year-old signed for the Saints from Stam­ford only in De­cem­ber, but a fan­tas­tic scor­ing rate of 11 in 11 matches alerted the St An­drews tal­ent-spot­ters to the for­mer Bar­ton Rovers, Ar­lesey and Ket­ter­ing Town player.

Birm­ing­ham are no strangers to tak­ing a punt on play­ers from this level.

In Jan­uary, City signed Dan Scarr from Stour­bridge, of the Evo-Stik North­ern League Pre­mier Divi­sion, after he came to their at­ten­tion in the club’s FA Cup run.

There’s an­other player caus­ing a lot of fuss as well.

His­ton’s Matthew Al­lan is on the wish-list of a num­ber of clubs, even though his side are in a scrap to re­tain their South­ern League Cen­tral sta­tus.

Crys­tal Palace re­port­edly want to take a closer look at the winger, who has scored 16 goals from mid­field this sea­son.

Nor­wich City have also had him watched in re­cent weeks and are said to be con­sid­er­ing of­fer­ing the teenager a trial at Car­row Road.
