Fleetwood Town are pleased to announce that Sam O’Halleron has signed his first professional contract with the club.
The young striker – who turns 18 on Wednesday – has put pen-to-paper on a 12 month deal with the club holding an option for a further year.
O’Halleron has impressed over the last two seasons in Simon Wiles’ under 18 side, and joins fellow youngsters Ryan Rydel and James Hill in penning contracts with the Cod Army in recent months.
Head coach, Joey Barton, said: “We’re pleased to see Sam sign his first professional contract with us at Fleetwood Town.
“He’s done well for Simon Wiles in his team, and knows that if he is to get into the first team picture that a lot of hard work is ahead of him. We look forward to seeing him continue his development with us.”
Academy Manager, Ciaran Donnelly, added: “Sam has worked extremely hard in the second year of his scholarship, and developed into a good striker who can produce moments of excellence.
“He has a lot of work to do if he is to realise his ambitions of being an EFL striker, but he has definitely shown good promise this season and the club are keen to see how he progresses.”
