A fifth teenager, Connor Loftus, has signed a similar deal following his release from Bury at the end of last season.

Central defender Burke, right-back Johnson, midfielder Sinnott and striker Leonard will now work closely with the club's development coach Steve Eyre, whose job it is to bridge the gap between junior and senior football.
