Declan Bisset, one of the Northern League’s most exciting young talents, is to make the step up to the Northern Premier League with Consett.
The creative midfielder, who spent some time in Sunderland’s youth set-up, has agreed terms to become a Steelman for the 2022-23 season.
He has spent the last two seasons at Whickham, making his debut as a 16-year-old, and has just turned 18.
In the 2021-22 season he played 36 games for the Highwaymen, scoring three matchwinning goals and providing four assists.
Good on the ball, he creates openings for others and has the ability to pick a pass.
