He revealed: "Scott was going for a third year of his YTS but he's shown me that much promise that we were more than happy to sign him on a full contract."
Meanwhile, Taylor said it was a "very difficult" decision to release Simon Russell, Michael Cooper, Danny Harvey and Ed O'Neill at the ends of their two-year YTS deals. Midfielder Russell made the first team last season, coming on as a substitute against Kidderminster in April, while goalkeeper Harvey has been an un-used substitute a number of times, but Taylor and youth team manager Billy Russell don't feel they're progressing enough to merit contract extensions.
Russell Fry is still at the club after signing pro terms last year.
