Millwall have taken Greenwich Borough striker Jack Barham on trial – with the 21-year-old featuring in their under-23 match at Coventry City today.
The youngster started off this season at Phoenix Sports but switched to the Bostik League South Division club in early October – bagging a hat-trick on his debut against Ramsgate.
Barham has scored six goals in four appearances for Greenwich, who are managed by former Lions frontman Gary Alexander.
Lions boss Neil Harris said: “He’s a young man coming to play for us today.
“He has come from Greenwich Borough where he plays for Gary Alexander, a friend of mine who is associated to our club. He was recommended to us by our local scouting system.”
Millwall last dipped into non-league when they signed Harry Smith from Folkestone Invicta in the summer of 2016.
