Fleetwood Town are delighted to announce that Barry Baggley has signed his first professional contract with the club.

The 17-year-old has put pen-to-paper on a deal which will keep him at Highbury until the summer of 2022, with the club holding an option for an extra year in the youngster’s contract.

Baggley became the youngest player to ever feature for the club in the EFL, when he came off the bench at Walsall in March, and featured three times for the Cod Army in the league last season.

Belfast born, Baggley has represented Northern Ireland at U17 level, and will now stay at Fleetwood for at least another three seasons. 

Head coach Joey Barton said upon Baggley signing his first contract: “Barry is a player with enormous potential, and we are delighted to see him pledge his long-term future to the club.

“He is a great kid, with an infectious personality, and he has fitted into the group brilliantly since he came into the first team last year.

“Barry knows he has a lot a work ahead of him, but he understands that he is at a right club for him with outstanding facilities, which will see him grow and develop as a player and a person.”
