Promising Bluebird Midfielder Retained

17-year old midfield starlet Joel Colwill has signed his first professional contract with the Bluebirds, keeping him at the club until June 2025.

The deal was completed last Friday and comes after an impressive first season as an apprentice. Despite his tender age, Colwill established himself as a pivotal player for City’s Under-18 and Under-23 sides throughout the 2021/22 campaign.

Speaking to cardiffcityfc.co.uk, Head of Academy David Hughes expressed his delight with Joel’s development, which he hopes will continue over the coming years.

“I think that Joel, his family and the staff who’ve worked with him can all be really pleased,” Hughes began. “It’s the next step in his journey, and naturally we’re all really happy for him.

“He’s got an outstanding attitude and application, and as we all know they are absolutely needed alongside ability at the top levels.

“It’s a testament to him that the Club felt it right to offer Joel the contract. The progress that he’s made has been outstanding, with room for further development and maturation from him, alongside his aspiration to make his First Team debut and ultimately have a career in professional football.”
