Fleetwood Town are delighted to announce Barry Baggley has signed a new long-term contract with the club.
Baggley – who has featured for the first-team on seven occasions already – is a regular with the Northern Ireland international setup, and recently went on a two-game camp, where he netted against Scotland U21.
The 20-year-old has put pen-to-paper keeping him at the club until the end of the 2023/24 season, with the club holding an option for another year.
Stephen Crainey, Town's Development Squad Head Coach, said: “Barry has great ability; I think he was really unfortunate with injuries last season, but I have no doubts with him. The pre-season games he played last season, especially against Blackburn, he was outstanding against their first team, and he showed what he could do.
“We’ve got real faith in Barry so hopefully he can stay injury-free, unlike last season when he picked up a few niggles and setbacks, but I’m sure he will be able to dust that off and kick on to show, again, what he’s all about this season.”
Jack Higgins, our Academy Manager, added: “It’s great to see Barry sign an extended contract with the club. He’s had a good insight into first-team football in recent seasons and we hope this opportunity gives him the time and assurance to really kick on and become a consistent performer.”
