Craig Hignett has completed the signing of centre-back Isaac Assenso following a successful trial with the Club.
The 19-year-old has been training with Pools since the start of the season and played in the Reserves’ wins over York City and Bradford City.
Having been brought up in Leeds, Assenso joined his hometown club as a Youth Team player before moving on to join Scunthorpe United on professional terms last summer.
Following his release from Glanford Park, Pools boss Hignett was alerted to his availability and has now managed to iron out a deal for the young defender following an impressive trial.
“The lads have made me so welcome and now I’m just looking to get my foot in the door,” Assenso told us.
“Everyone has been so welcoming which has helped me a lot and it’s really appreciated – we’ve got a great group of lads here and now I’m just looking forward to playing my part for the Club.”
Assenso has been handed squad number 37 at The Northern Gas and Power Stadium.
