randombc Posted March 6, 2012 Share Posted March 6, 2012 [size=3]Academy Manager Darren Wassall has revealed two of Derby County's first-year scholars and three of the club's second year scholars have been offered professional contracts.[/size] [size=3]Second year scholars Stefan Galinski, Kane Richards and goalkeeper Mats Morch have been offered their first professional deals, as have first year scholars Will Hughes and Josh Lelan.[/size] Wasall told The Ram: "The contracts are a reward for all their hard work and performances to date. "Will has come a long way this year and has played for the England under-17s, whilst Josh has been called up to the England Under-18s on standby. "It is an old cliché in football but when they say 'somebody is always watching' - at Moor Farm there really is. Everybody is passionate about youth development here and if we think they are good enough, they will get their chance. "Hopefully the word will spread from a recruitment point of view, and people start seeing that there are five players in the Derby first-team this year, which have all come through the youth team." Taken from dcfc.co.uk Great news for the future, a promising goalkeeper and a recently calles up under 17's player, hopefully see a few of these blossoms over the next coming seasons. I think WIll Hughes is probably has the most potential based on 'hype' so may even get a few chances next season. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
