Mildenhall boss Dean Greygoose said: “Aaron is a great lad who is technically gifted and has a great temperament.

“He has worked hard since joining us and is always looking to get better.

“He did not look out of place from the first training session he had with us.

“His progress has been brilliant in what is a very physical league.

“He really deserves this chance and we wish him all the best.”
