WOLVERHAMPTON have snapped up talented teenager Leon Flint.
The former British Youth Champion joins the Monmore men as their new Rising Star following the recent, surprise retirement of Tom Bacon.
He guested for the club at Peterborough last week but will make his official debut when they visit Ipswich in the Premiership next Monday.
Promoter Chris Van Straaten said: “Rory (Schlein – club captain) has worked with Leon a lot over the past couple of years on various training programmes and he couldn’t have spoken more highly of Leon.
“We know he’s certainly got a lot of potential and he made a good first impression when he guested for us at Peterborough last Monday.
“He fitted in with the team and gelled with everyone really well, he demonstrated a really mature attitude and an eagerness to learn quite quickly, and the points will come his way I’m sure.”
