Wanderers’ B Team has strengthened its squad ahead of the new season by completing the signing of defender Luke Matheson.
The former Rochdale and Wolves youngster has agreed a 12-month deal with the Whites after a successful trial spell.
As well as training with Matt Craddock’s squad, Matheson – a free agent after leaving Wolves at the end of last season – has also played the last three pre-season friendlies and will be involved again when the B Team play at Warrington Rylands tonight (Tuesday).
Matheson, 20, becomes the fourth summer signing for the B Team following the arrivals of defender Charlie Hayes-Green and the front pair of Ben Andreucci and Trevon Bryan.
The move brings the right-sided defender – who became Rochdale’s youngest debutant when he featured in an EFL Trophy tie at the age of 15 before scoring in a League Cup tie at Manchester United a year later in 2019 – back to the North-West.
