“We are pleased to see the system is already producing players which we think have what it takes to be a success as a scholar at Fleetwood Town.
“Owen is a young player who will make the first step on the footballing ladder when he turns 16, but he obviously has a long way to go, as with all players at that age.
“He’s done well for us this season, scoring goals across a number of different age groups, and we are delighted to have entered an agreement for him to sign as a scholar.
“With plenty of hard work we hopefully can see him develop in the coming years.”
