18. Érico Henrique Esteves Sousa
DATE OF BIRTH
Winger Erico Sousa joined Town on a one-year deal during the summer.
The former Portugal Under-19 International made the move to England at the age of 10 and began his footballing career as a schoolboy at Manchester City, before making the move to Barnsley as a scholar before penning his first professional contract at the club.
Erico moved to Slovenia in 2015 to sign for Celje before coming back to England originally with Tadcaster Albion before spells at Accrington Stanley and Tranmere Rovers. Sousa returned to Accrington Stanley in 2017, helping to achieve promotion to League One during the 2017/18 season with a total of ten appearances in all competitions, scoring three goals.
Last season, Sousa joined National League North side Darlington, where he scored seven goals and contributed with three assists in 14 appearances before the curtailment of the 2020/21 campaign.
Sousa's exciting and direct attacking style on the wings attracted the attention of a number of clubs but is thrilled at the opportunity to play in front of the Town supporters this season.
