Defender Kieron Dawes is the latest of Blues’ Academy graduates to sign professional terms.
The 18-year-old has penned a one-year deal, with a further one-year option in the Club's favour.
Dawes is a shining example for any young player to never give up their dreams.
The former Hamstead Hall Academy pupil from Erdington initially joined the Club when he was eight.
He came up through the age groups but failed to earn a scholarship first time around.
After his release, Dawes linked up with Solihull Moors where his talents blossomed, and Blues came calling for a second time in October 2016.
The right-back was a regular in the Under-18s side in his two seasons as a scholar, making 24 appearances last term and registering his first goal in a 3-0 home win over Bristol City in March.
Dawes featured in all six FA Youth Cup matches as Steve Spooner’s team enjoyed a tremendous run to the semi-finals of the prestigious knockout competition.
He made the step up into Under-23s squad during the final weeks of the 2017/18 campaign, starting once and coming on as a substitute three times.
