Kettering Town have signed defender Ellis Deeney on non-contract terms following a trial with the club.

The former Aston Villa reserve player has been training with the Poppies this week and is available for Saturday's trip to Tamworth.

The 20-year-old left-back captained Villa in the 2009-10 FA Youth Cup final defeat by Chelsea, but was released this summer.

He failed to make a senior appearance for the Premier League club.
