Young trio offered professional contracts with Fleetwood Town

30 March 2017

Three of Town's brightest prospects offered deals with the club

Fleetwood Town are delighted to announce that Lewis Baines, Gerard Garner and Daniel Mooney have been offered professional contracts with the club.

The young trio have been on two-year scholarships and have impressed for Nathan Rooney’s under 18’s side.

Baines – a commanding left-footed central defender – signs alongside deadly attacking pair Garner and Mooney – who have scored goals galore this season in Rooney’s side.

Director of Player Development, Stuart Murdoch said: “It is testament of the progress of the academy that we have three more players signing as first year professionals. Following on from last year when Nathan Sheron and Mamadou Djabi gained contracts, we are delighted that Lewis, Gerard and Dan have followed in their footsteps.”

Under 18’s head coach Nathan Rooney added: “They have been our most consistent performers and have shown big improvements as people in the last two years. Lewis has been a good leader off the pitch and has shown a good attitude from day one. Gerard and Dan have matured on and off the pitch and have improved massively as footballers.

“Now it’s time to roll their sleeves up and maintain the standards on the pitch they have set to enable them to make further progress. I wish the lads all the best as they embark on their next adventure.”

Look out for Lewis, Gerard and Dan as they will be introduced to the crowd prior to Saturday's match with Swindon Town on the Highbury pitch!
