Fleetwood Town are delighted to announce that Harrison Holgate has been offered a professional contract with the club.
Holgate has been on a two-year scholarship with the club’s under 18s side and has impressed at both right-back, and central defence.
The 17-year-old becomes the seventh player from the club’s category three academy to sign professional terms, following on from Nathan Sheron, Mamadou Djabi, Lewis Baines, Dan Mooney, Gerard Garner and Billy Crellin.
Leeds-born, Holgate has stepped up to the club’s development squad this season, impressing at right-back in the Lancashire Senior Cup final against Bury.
Academy manager Ciaran Donnelly said on the news: “We’re delighted for Harrison.
“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.”
Harrison will be presented in front of the crowd at Highbury before Saturday’s game with Walsall.
