Semenyo signed up from SGS

City have signed up SGS College youngster Antoine Semenyo, 17, on a two-year deal.

Originally from London, Semenyo moved to SGS – where the club’s Academy is based – to join up with their football programme.

City’s loans manager Brian Tinnion told bcfc.co.uk: “Given we’re both on the same site, it was felt important that the Academy built up a strong working relationship with the College.

“Subsequently, myself and Damian Butt (Academy head of recruitment) spotted Antoine playing for SGS and liked what we saw.

“He spent a short time on trial with us before putting pen to paper on a professional contract and we’re delighted to welcome him to the club.”

In his first appearance since signing the deal, Semenyo celebrated by grabbing a brace as City Under-18s thrashed Hull City 7-2 in the Professional Development League.
