Fleetwood Town are delighted to announce Chris Conn-Clarke has signed a new contract with the club.
Conn-Clarke – who recently featured in two games for Northern Ireland’s Under-21s, with both of them being against Scotland in early June – initially signed for the club from Premier League side Burnley and since then, he has gone from strength to strength.
The 19-year-old has put pen-to-paper keeping him at the club until the end of the 2022/23 season, with the club holding an option for another year.
Stephen Crainey, Town's Development Squad Head Coach, said: “We got Chris in from Burnley last season who is an unbelievable talent on the ball, who been a great kid towards all of the staff since he’s come into the building. He’s a final third player who makes things happen, who can both assist and score goals.
“Sometimes these players are hard to come by and hopefully, he can keep the great attitude he’s shown since last season and continue to set himself high standards which can give him the best chance to threaten the first team.”
Jack Higgins, our Academy Manager, added: “Chris has settled in really well at Fleetwood Town and shown his quality in training and games. He’s fully deserved of this new contract, and we look forward to watching him develop further this season.”
Keep up the good work, Cricky!
