Danny signs for V9 Academy!
Tamworth F.C. can confirm the striker Danny Newton has become one of the first three players to sign for V9 Academy, a new venture headed by Leicester City and England's Jamie Vardy. The aim of V9 Academy is to discover non-league football talent and promote them to the professional game.
Newton's prolific form in the first part of the season caught the eye of V9 Academy scouts and producers, who attended the recent home fixture with AFC Fylde in order to film for the V9 documentary series, which will be aired in six episodes on Sky Sports in summer 2017.
Newton, pictured above with Vardy, and fellow recruits James Montgomery (AFC Telford) and Luke Coulson (Eastleigh) will have the chance to impress clubs from the Premier League and Football League over a series of events in summer 2017. His current commitments to Tamworth F.C. will not be affected by participation in the V9 Academy project.
