Former Leeds United youngster Chris Dawson has joined non-league side Scarborough Athletic.

Dawson has joined the Evo-Stik Division One North side for the remainder of the season after overcoming an Anterior Cruciate Ligament injury.

The midfielder was tipped for the very top as a youngster coming through the Leeds United academy but his career has spiralled downwards since being hand his debut by Neil Warnock against Derby County in April 2013.

The 23-year-old went on to make just four appearances for Leeds before he was released in January 2016 despite becoming a Welsh under-21 international during his time at Elland Road.

He then joined up with his former Leeds academy manager Neil Redfearn at Rotherham United but he failed to make a senior appearance.

Dawson spent the first half of the 2016/17 season with Norwegian side Viking FC where he made nine appearances before he returned to Rotherham.

Despite Rotherham struggling at the foot of the Championship, the midfielder failed to make an appearance in the second half of last season and he was eventually released at the end of last season.

The youngster will now hope to get his career back on track after overcoming a serious ACL injury as he spends the final few months of the season with Scarborough as they chase promotion to the Evo-Stik Premier Division.
