Bascome signs for Darlington

Osagi Bascome has signed for English non-League side Darlington until the end of the season and could make his debut when they face Chester at home tonight.

The Bermuda forward has received international clearance to play for the County Durham side, who play in the National League North — the sixth tier of English football.

Bascome had been playing at the regional level in Spain for Massanassa, having previously had a short spell at Sky Bet Championship side Bristol City, where he did not make a first-team appearance.

Tommy Smith, the Darlington manager, told the club's website: “Osagi has trained with us for a couple of weeks, and has impressed enough to earn a deal until the end of the season.”

The 20-year-old was an unused substitute in Bermuda's 3-1 win away to the Dominican Republic in a Concacaf Nations League qualifier on Sunday, which qualified the island for the Gold Cup for the first time.

Bascome, who is the son of Herbie and nephew of Andrew and David Bascome, is a product of the Aston Villa Academy and had stints playing youth football at Spanish sides Levante and Valencia.

Darlington are seventeenth in the league table.
