Fleetwood Town can confirm the signing of Jack Doherty for the Under-18s on a two-year scholarship from League of Ireland outfit, Derry City FC.
Jack Doherty, no relation to fellow incoming scholar Jake, has signed from League of Ireland side, Derry City FC.
A Derry native, Jack has progressed through the full system at Derry City and played Under-19s level as a 15-year-old. Like Conor, Jack has also represented Northern Ireland, and also captained them in the same Victory Shield tournament.
A box to box midfielder, Jack brings lots of energy to the game and possesses a good knowledge of the game, both in and out of possession. Upon signing for Fleetwood Town he’ll be looking to impact the Under-18s side on a regular basis.
Head of Academy, Jack Higgins said he is very delighted to have Jack on board as well as fellow countryman Conor Haughey.
“We are absolutely delighted to sign both Conor and Jack as we continue to develop our relationship with clubs in Northern Ireland. Both boys come with real quality but more so an understanding of what is needed to be a professional footballer.
"They’ve both been part of the famous JD Academy and is credit to Andy Waterworth and his staff for continually producing top young talent in Northern Ireland.
"We have now had 12 players from Northern Ireland in the past five years, seven of which are still here, which shows our continuous commitment to supporting the development of young Irish players.
"I must personally thank both Derry City, Glentoran and Andy Waterworth for being a pleasure to deal with and supporting the progression of both boys.”
