OXFORD United have added to their new development squad by signing teenage defenders Kenzer Lee and Matt Bevans.

The pair, both 19, have been on trial with the U's this summer and played 45 minutes in Saturday's opening pre-season friendly, a 2-1 win at Ardley United.

Lee, a centre half, came through the ranks at West Ham and had a spell at Banbury United last season.

Right back Bevans was in Watford's youth set-up, where his progress was hindered by a serious knee injury two years ago.

The pair will join fellow new signing Josh Shama and youth team graduates Callum O'Dowda, Sam Long, David Lynn, Max Crocombe and Ty Marsh in the new development squad.

The group, largely consisting of players aged under 21, will play around 16-20 competitive games this season as they look to make the jump from youth team football into the first-team.

Both are understood to have signed 12-monht contracts and were among the squad which travelled to Scotland earlier today for the club's pre-season tour.
