The 19-year-old moved from Glentoran’s youth academy to English outfit Fleetwood Town in October 2020 but was released this summer and has been training with the Bannsiders during pre-season.
Wallace, who also made six appearances for Northern Ireland’s U16 side, is a Portstewart native and boss Oran Kearney is excited to have the right-back on board.
“Jake was keen to come on board after his release by Fleetwood, where he had a bad injury and things probably just didn’t go the way he would have wanted there,” he said. “However, he has trained with us and done extremely well in both the sessions and pre-season matches.
“It’s been a frustrating few years for him and he is looking forward to getting out on the pitch again and enjoying his football.
“He is a local lad which is vitally important and we are eager to continue working with him.”
Wallace joins Graham Kelly and Davy McDaid as summer arrivals at the Showgrounds.
