The Hexham-born forward played for 80 minutes in Hebburn’s FA Vase win against Northern League title rivals North Shields on Saturday on the back of an initial week training alongside the Cumbrians’ first-team.

In the aftermath of that Vase win, Hornets manager Kevin Bolam confirmed that Scott will return to Cumbria on Monday and could feature in a reserve team fixture against Fleetwood Town on Wednesday.

He told The Gazette: “Cedwyn is spending another week at Carlisle and we had a good chat about what is happening on Thursday.

“He is going to play in a reserve team fixture against Fleetwood, so we should hopefully hear something next week or the week after.

“But I have said all along that the kid is three months away from playing in a Vase Final, so we would like to see him finish the season here and then move to pastures new – but we will see what happens.

“We will support him on everything to help him no matter what happens.

“We think he is a good player and a good lad, and we want to see him do well.

“He’ll play in that reserve team game and then I would expect something after that.”

Scott had previously spent four weeks on trial at Newcastle United and his goalscoring exploits in the Northern League have also attracted interest from the likes of Sunderland, Morecambe and at least two National League clubs.
