Fleetwood Hand Holgate Pro Contract

Fleetwood Hand Holgate Pro Contract

Fleetwood Town apprentice Harrison Holgate has signed his first professional contract after impressing in the club’s Under-18s and Development Squad.

The versatile defender caught the eye at right-back during Fleetwood’s Lancashire Senior Cup final against Bury, with the 17-year-old becoming the second player from the current cohort to sign professional terms, joining England Under-17 World Cup winner Billy Crellin.

“We’re delighted for Harrison,” Academy manager Ciaran Donnelly told the club website. “He’s worked hard over the last couple of years, showing a great attitude, especially when he had an extended period out due to injury.

“We think he has great potential, and we believe he is a player who can really push on over the next few years.”

Elsewhere, academy graduates Nathan Sheron and Mamadou Djabi have been offered new deals, while Town have opted to take up one-year contract extensions for Lewis Baines, Gerard Garner and Dan Mooney.
