Wimbledon have announced that two young Academy prospects have signed their first professional contracts with the club.
Attacking midfielder Morgan Williams and forward Paris Lock are the pair who have committed their futures to Plough Lane.
“You’ve got two very different journeys here,” said Academy Manager Michael Hamilton.
“Morgan has been with us from a very early age. He joined us as part of the pre-Academy, before joining the Academy formally as an Under-9. He’s been here all the way through. When he made his first-team debut at the end of last season it was a captivating moment, because of the journey he’s been on. It’s just the start of what’s going to happen.
“I believe that on the way back from Grimsby, Will Nightingale spoke to him and let him know that he’s now got the record of being the longest-serving player to have made it through the Academy and into the first-team, so we’ve got a very talented player on our hands.”
“Paris joined us as an Under-12,” added Michael. “He’s an exciting player that can play off either the left or right side. His skill is his output. He always contributes with goals and creating chances. There’s no doubt in my mind that once the fans get to know him a little bit more, they’ll be really excited by what he can bring.”
