Tamworth have announced the signing of Ben Hart from Staffordshire neighbours Burton Albion – but who is he?
The 19-year-old defender was one of three Brewers academy graduates at the beginning of the current season and featured in a handful of their pre-season friendlies.
After initially signing a six-month senior deal with Nigel Clough’s men, Hart extended his contract until the end of the current season and has previously had spells on loan at Kidsgrove Athletic – he’s also got League One experience after appearing for the Brewers against Rochdale earlier this season.
Burton Albion academy manager Dan Robinson said, “He’s got pace, he’s got ability to play a pass through lines, so he will play forward with pace and purpose.
“What Ben does is he is athletic, so he can actually make up for some of his lack of experience with his athleticism. Physically, he is a strong lad.”
Hart could make his first appearance for the Lambs in this weekend’s home game with Hitchin Town.
