U23s Bolster Ranks With Smith & Hickey Signings
The Under-23s have bolstered their ranks with the double signing of Callum Smith and Jordan Hickey.
Both players have penned one-year deals with the Club after impressing whilst on trial last season.
Gateshead-born Smith was previously on the books at Newcastle United, where he impressed after breaking into the Magpies' Under-23s side at an early age.
A positive left-sided player, Scott first joined the North-East outfit at the age of 11 and made two appearances in last season's Checkatrade Trophy against Crewe Alexandra and Port Vale, as well as featuring in 13 Premier League 2 games.
Hickey (pictured above) - a hard-working central midfielder who can also operate in defence - has joined the Tigers following a long spell in Sunderland's Category One youth set-up.
The 18-year-old made 13 league appearances for the Black Cats' Under-18s side last term, scoring once, whilst also featuring in their Under-23s' Premier League 2 campaign.
